Fatima Benitez

Fatima married her best friend Juan Carlos in June 2012, 7 years exactly after their first date. They have two fun, loving, active little girls named Amelia (7) and Alejandra (4). Fatima’s road to becoming a paraprofessional with EC was an answer to a private prayer she had prayed to God. He has abundantly blessed her and now she wants to be a blessing to the children she will be working with. When she is not at EC, you will find her adventuring with her family around the tri state area. They enjoy outdoors sports like kayaking and skiing. Visiting museums, zoos, aquariums, farms, and amusement parks are their favorite pastime.

Fatima migrated from Peru with her mother at age of 9 and has lived in North Bergen for 30 years now. Her and her husband are now looking into buying their first home but patiently waiting on God’s directions before taking such an important step. Their family has been attending Liquid Church for about 5 years now where she has been part of Liquid’s family team. She has served in the nursery alongside other women of faith to bring glory to God by using her passion for kids.
