Miami, Florida USA — Lorenzo left his native Cuba while a teenager and moved to Mexico, where he completed high school. A few years later he came to live in the United States, where he graduated with a BS in chemical engineering.
Since quite a child, Lorenzo felt a calling for the helping professions. He worked with disadvantaged children in Mexico, and while in college in Connecticut he worked first as an interpreter and then as a social worker. His caseload included families with social and economic problems as well as individuals with problems related to drug and alcohol addiction. After graduating, he worked for a short time as an engineer, but he says that God always led him to the “people” business, and his career included all aspects of human resources. Lorenzo developed a return-to-work program for people who had been injured at work and were considered disabled. This earned him several awards for his pioneering work in the field of employment of people with disabilities. He gave many presentations on this subject, including at the annual meeting of the President’s Committee for the Employment of People with Disabilities. In addition to this, Lorenzo has led many training seminars on such topics as cooperative work relationships and employee coaching.
Lorenzo embraced the study of Christian Science in early adulthood. Since then he has been an enthusiastic participant in church activities, including conducting services in English and Spanish and teaching Sunday School. He currently works as a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing.
Lorenzo is available to give talks in English, Spanish, and Italian.
