I’m a wife, mother, author, speaker, entrepreneur, and Executive Pastor of a thriving church plant, Hope Center, in Maryland. Before becoming a full time pastor, I worked for 7 years as a top sales executive in the wedding industry generating over 5 million dollars in revenue for the top tech wedding platform in the U.S. I also graduated high honors from American University with a Masters in Sociology, concentrating on first generation Latinas in the U.S. Needless to say, I have a passion to see women in all spheres of influence excel in their callings and purpose.
How it all started: I come from a single mother household. My mother worked 12 hour days to ensure my sisters and I had everything we needed. She didn’t have much, but what she had – faith, wisdom and life-giving words – she poured into us. Her steadfastness in a broken marriage, her joy in single motherhood, and her endurance in faith laid the blueprint for my success in these areas today. I have learned that marriage, motherhood, and ministry are full of defining moments meant to catapult us into all we are destined to be. Because of this, I have committed my life to help women steward those moments and become the best God-ordained version of themselves!
Today, I’m happily married to my best friend and power-house preacher, Sergio Chavez, and a proud momma to three beautiful girls (Kalea, Nadae, and Naviyah).
