Your Work Inspiration

  • I remember when I first started college, I didn't have a clue about what to expect. Had it not been for caring administrators and faculty I am not sure I could have made it through college. When I think about how far I have come personally and professionally from that first generation college student who didn't have a clue, I am inspired to help others realize that their origin does not have to be their destination. Education, even with all its' flaws is still the best and most promising option for breaking the cycle of poverty and under-education.

What Makes You Special

  • When I am not at work I like to travel to different states and country. My next international trip will be to Japan. I also enjoy going to the theater, dancing, Jazz concerts and the beach!
