Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
When I was younger my mother went to school to have a career to support us, since she was a single mom. The time that I was able to spend with her was when she was studying. She instilled in me my love of Science and opened my eyes to how amazing the human body is. The spark that she gave me is what I want to share with our future generations. To me there is no better way to share then by education.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy reading Fantasy Fiction books. Some of my Favorite authors are Kelley Armstrong, Kim Harrison, Liz Schulte and Darynda Jones. The list really goes on and on. I also enjoy being outdoors in the Spring and Summer gardening or spending time with my three boys and my husband.
