Summary

I make a conscious effort to exhibit positive communication and good character.  I promote continuous learning.   My mission shall always be fertilized by my own belief that no one should settle for the minimum in education or life experiences.

Objective

I would like to transition into a new opportunity that makes use of my excellent written, verbal and collaborative skills.  Although I've worked in the academic industry for the past ten years, I am interested in venturing into other areas outside of teaching in a school environment.

Interest

I am interested in holistic health, autism research, taking care of the environment, nurturing flowers and promoting the use and benefits of loose tea.
