Biography

 
I am currently the Quality Monitoring Program Dietitian and Pharmacist Program Manager. I’m a registered nurse. I graduated from the Universidad de Puerto Rico, Humacao, Puerto Rico with a Bachelor’s in Nursing. In 2004, I completed a Master’s degree in Education from University of Texas, Austin. In the last 14 years, I have work in partnership with nursing home providers to improve the life of individuals living in nursing homes. Early in my state career, I worked with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I am a Certified Dementia Practitioner, a Certified Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Trainer, and now a Person Centered Thinking Trainer.  I believe in creating opportunities to make positive changes in people’s lives while improving the quality of life for the individuals we serve in Texas.
