What calls you to NETWORK? Where do you find inspiration in this work?
The social and racial justice issues that NETWORK works to address represent the acute and immediate needs of people in our country who often do not have a voice. I feel called to help with the efforts to ease their struggles and their suffering.
What do you like to do outside of NETWORK?
I enjoy all that Colorado has to offer – hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, skiing and snow hiking. I also enjoy gardening, traveling, visiting my family in Puerto Rico, reading and NFL football. But my favorite thing to do is spend time with my twin grandsons born in August 2020!
Hometown: Born in Puerto Rico and raised in the Midwest.
