Summary

After a five year career in business development, business operations and as a performing arts director for children, I chose to pursue a life long passion of teaching and love of learning. This life experience coupled with my enthusiasm for learning, has motivated me to have a constructive impact on young lives by equipping them with the tools to live life purposefully and positively.
