Vice President

Elena Ferrer, Ed.D.

As the Vice President I have an active role in contacting members and friends of the organization. I also believe it is important to preserve the memory of our delightful meetings and events; that is the reason I use photography as a tool to immortalize these beautiful moments. I consider that my duties in unity with those of our founding members will contribute to fulfill the vision of our mission.
