Bio: I am very excited to be involved with the faith formation of the Hispanic Community. In 2019 I earned a Doctorate of Sacred Theology (S.T.D.). My doctoral topic was Mary as a Jewish Mother in relation to the women of the Hebrew Bible. I have also been working as a faith formation teacher for more than fifteen years. I am a theology Catholic speaker and I have been writing articles for different publications. My former job position was Director of Faith Formation and Evangelization at a parish in Indiana. I have spent my life studying theology and also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Sciences from La Salle University in Mexico City, and a Licentiate in Sacred Theology (S.T.L.) in Biblical Studies from the Pontifical University of Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico. Concurrent to my studies in Mexico, I studied at the International Marian Research Institute (IMRI) at University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio.

A Little About Me: I was born in Mexico and have been a member of the Catholic Church since the day I was baptized at one month old. I love to read to spend time with my family, including my husband Enrique and two sons, Diego and David.

Favorite Saint: St. Therese of Lisieux

Favorite Bible verse: Ps 23:1 : The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
