With 15+ years of experience in talent development across private, public, and non-profit sectors, I have held leadership positions, built teams, advised executives, and collaborated with board members. This diverse background enables me to connect with individuals at all levels and develop leaders across organizations, from entry-level professionals to C-suite executives.

In 2016, I founded Talent Advantage, LLC., driven by my passion for talent development. Recognizing the opportunity to provide boutique consulting services, I specialize in personality and leadership assessments, career and professional development, management and leadership development, employee engagement, and onboarding initiatives.

About Me

I was raised in the quiet suburbs of Puerto Rico before embracing the vibrant atmosphere of New York City during my formative years. From an early age, I developed a keen interest in understanding human behavior and what motivates individuals to excel in different settings.


I consider myself fortunate to have merged my personal and professional passions. During my leisure time, I indulge in travel, engage in home improvement projects, cherish moments with loved ones, and making a positive impact by dedicating time to support communities in need.


I'm happy to partner on new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect!
