Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I believe a quality education is the key to a person’s success, both professionally and personally. I believe that nothing should stop you from from reaching your goals in life. If you can dream it, then you can achieve it!

Personal Interests

In my spare time, I enjoy exploring Kansas City since I moved here in 2014. I love gardening, growing lots of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. I also love reading and watching good movies on hulu and netflix. Music is my all-time favorite thing to do along with ballroom dancing. I exercise in my spare time (Zumba).
