I am culturally competent in understanding the specific cultural, linguistic, social, and economic nuances of particular people and families.

I have always had the desire to help and empower people to be their best selves regardless of their current circumstances.
Traveling and spending time with friends, family, and my puppy.
Read my Bible and talk to my mom.
Atomic Habits because it helps with changing habits and improving self.
Family Justice Center, Habitat for Humanity, and Susan G Colman all help people in need who take pride in their jobs.
I recharge by boxing, singing and dancing around the house, family and friend time, and traveling.
I adopted a puppy two years ago. He is the cutest Shar Pei, Shepherd, and Dachshund mix. My favorite thing about him is when it’s time to go to sleep he will go to everyone in the house to get a belly rub.
