I came to Long Island as a child and was awestruck by the beauty of sprawling powder-fine beaches. Originally from the central part of Guatemala, I could only imagine what a beach looked like. Almost 30 years later, Long Island still holds a special place in my heart.

I have a BS in Business Management from Binghamton University and I am proud to have just completed my 10th year as the Office Manager at Peconic Baykeeper. While working, I get to help preserve the place I call home. What could be better?
