Roberto is executive vice president for Commonwealth Charter Academy Charter School (CCA), a public cyber charter school in Pennsylvania serving over 9000 students across the state (www.ccaeducate.me). In his role, Roberto supports the school’s board, administrators, teachers, and other staff in creating and delivering innovative programs to educate and help prepare children for life after graduation from high school.
Roberto and his wife, Elizabeth, have three children – Catherine, RJ, and Christian. RJ was diagnosed with autism when he was four, although Elizabeth, who is a physical therapist specializing in helping children with physical and intellectual disabilities, observed clear symptoms of RJ’s autism long before he was formally diagnosed. RJ’s autism diagnosis led Roberto and Elizabeth to support RUN FOR AUTISM when they both took an interest in long distance running in their late 30s. In addition to being a regular runner, Roberto enjoys swimming and engaging the Scouting activities with his children.
Roberto was born in Lima, Peru, and he moved to Miami Beach, Florida, as an infant with his family. He earned a BA in Business Administration from the University of Florida and a JD from the University of Miami School of Law. Roberto began his career as an assistant city attorney for the City of Miami Beach, Florida. He moved to Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, in 2005 after accepting a position with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania where he served as legal counsel for 13 years prior to joining CCA.
