Bilingual Teaching ARtist
I believe that everyone is a writer, and everyone is an artist. I have taught bilingual writing courses where adults are free to play and discover their creative voice.
Speaking & StorYTelling
I have participated in storytelling events such as WHYY's First Person Arts, and as the Keynote Speaker for the Wilmington Writer's Conference. I have also been a guest speaker at various educational institutions.
I believe in using theatre and the arts to leave this world better than I found it. I have led successful Wellness Workshops, Conflict Resolution Workshops, and Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Theatre Workshops
Despite almost losing my first language I have become proficient in Spanish and delight in translating marketing materials and plays.

"On the whole, working with Ms. Ortiz's play was a very powerful and enriching experience and most students pointed to it as one of the best things we did this year. - Educator in NYC High School
