Ms. Vélez was the academics director of Perfume de Alabanza, a worship and dance ministry founded in 1993, that developed classes and workshops to engage children and adults in worship and a biblically sound foundation.

She is excited to be part of the Aug Prep family and be able to share with her students and co-workers all that the Lord gifted her with, by His grace and for glory.
