After working as a teacher and tutor for a few years my life changed when in 2006 I started working at The Humane Society of

In only a few months I was appointed Adoption Counselor and Humane Educator. This allowed me to reach many children, youth and adults with the idea of responsible pet ownership, kind treatment toward animals and the prevention of cruelty. In 2009 I created Mi Mejor Amigo a group dedicated to promote responsible pet ownership and animal welfare through humane education. Lack of funds was no impediment to continue with my mission, and I was able to reach many at-risk communities in need of prevention and intervention programs to break the cycle of violence.

In the summer of 2013, JUNTOS provided me the opportunity to start the Humane Education pilot program with the Playa Grande Elementary School in Vieques. By working with JUNTOS I’ve been able to see a dream come true, for Humane Education to be integrated in the school system. As a Humane Society University student, certified in Humane Education and specializing in Animal Welfare and the Humane Society’s First Strike Program, I aspire to achieve the highest title with a masters degree in Humane Education.
