Get to Know Me

What are your interests outside of work?

I like going to the gym, hiking, shopping, dancing, eating, relaxing, karaoke, cleaning, and sleeping.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I seek out therapy, participate in professional consultations, and connect with friends, family, and my cat.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

My favorite organization is Homeboy Industries because I served the incarcerated youth for many years and that population holds a special place in my heart. I admire and appreciate how this organization helps support such a disenfranchised population, giving them a chance and a way.

How do you recharge?

I recharge my cuddling with my cat, going to the gym, and connecting with friends and family.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have a cat. My favorite pet story is every morning with him. He is the cutest and biggest ray of sunshine in my everyday life. Watching him play, sleep, and be loving are always memories that warm my heart.
