Born in Puerto Rico, Lydia moved to Pennsylvania at a young age. After graduating from college with a bachelor’s degree in education, she worked with the Migrant Education Program as assistant director.
Lydia then came to Florida, becoming an Exceptional Student Education (ESE) teacher at a vocational school, making a difference in the lives of students with disabilities for 20 years before retiring and relocating to West Palm Beach.
Lydia’s time in Palm Beach has given her the opportunity to work with the Jewish, Elderly, and Disabled communities, including by starting a non-profit outreach that helps those in need.
Lydia is a proud conservative woman and advocate for West Palm Beach’s homeless population. She goes to Phipps Park weekly to provide meals, protective gear, and hope.
Throughout Lydia’s diverse career and history of service, she has mentored those with disabilities and guided the less fortunate to proper housing, medical resources, and spiritual wellness. She would like to continue to make a difference in the lives of the disadvantage by creating resources such as housing and education.
Lydia’s purpose in running is to make a difference in the lives of the underserved. She can relate to educators in and out of the classroom and highly values the life of the elderly among whom she does outreach.
As our representative, Lydia plans on tackling the homeless issue, education, and housing. She will serve as a bridge between political parties and the community, striving to bring unity to all human beings.
