At the present time in my life I feel the Lord calling me to work on the ministry of music. He has placed it on my heart and I continue to pray as He leads me in the direction that I should go. This being a dream of mine for many years, I hope to someday be able to travel the world and share of His love through music. I pray and hope that we can all serve the Lord with our gifts as He calls us individually.
I started singing in a Spanish church in Detroit, MI at the age of three. My parents saw the Lord working through me and encouraged me to develop my gift and continue to serve my God. As I matured my passion for music grew. In high school my professor motivated me and I got involved with solo competitions, choir, and began to form a love for music. I had many influences growing up but my family always set the example of looking to God for leadership and direction.
After High School I went on to college not really certain of what I should pursue, but held an interest for working with people, enjoyed the sciences and was intrigued by the human body. I sought counsel and while at Andrews University I decided to pursue a Nursing career. That year I was heavily involved with music with my band Quintessence, solo/duo performances, involved in a large choir and touring with a select choir.
At one of my performances in Pioneer Memorial Church, my religion professor was there and felt impressed by the Holy Spirit to invite to be the minister of music for a mission trip to an orphanage in Santa Barbara, Honduras in Central America. I was honored and with tears in my eyes immediately felt the calling. I went to Honduras and was truly blessed. You can see some of my pictures in the photos category of the website.
Towards the end of that year in 2001, I learned that the Lord was leading me in a different direction. He did not want me to pursue nursing at Andrews University. I moved back home near Detroit and finished my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at Wayne State University. It was definitely challenging at times, but I knew the Lord was leading. Four years later, I earned my license as a registered nurse and leaped out into the real world where I have been able to learn a great deal.
