My Story

I am a non-profit professional living in the Bronx with a B.A. in Sociology & an M.S. in Urban Affairs. I have lived in the NYC area almost my whole life, except for a stint in Bogotá, Colombia (yes, I'm bilingual in Spanish.)

I earned the distinction of being named one of 25 Influential Bronx Women for 2014. I'm the Founder of BronxCentric! Bronx Movers and Shakers, a website and series of social media circuits with a vision to unite Bronxites while strengthening our communities.

I work as a Community Engagement Coordinator in a non-profit, including administering all social media presence for my site, facilitating a community partners network, and branding the organization and program.

I am looking for networking opportunities, can offer consultation in areas of social media/communications, and am an amateur photographer in my leisure.
