“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” -Golda Meir

I was born and raised in Texas. Traveled the world living with my father and later taking over through work opportunities. I am privileged to have formed my own little family with my awesome husband Omar, my sweet daughter Jayleen and three adorable dogs Bello, Peanut, and LeBlanc.

My educational background includes an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts, and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from the University of Texas in Brownsville, Texas. Master of Education from Houston Baptist University in Houston, Texas.

My passion is to support students in many different ways in order for them to become exceptional human beings. I believe every student has the capacity to achieve greatness and with guidance from a trusted adult is valuable.

"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new." - Albert Einstein

I grew up all over the United States, and attended high school and college in California (a proud UC Davis alumnae!). While obtaining my undergraduate degree in Psychology and International Relations I studied my junior year at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain. Since graduating I have worked as a teacher, counselor, and advisor in Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Texas, USA, and Mexico. I hold Masters' degrees in International Teaching and International Counseling and Graduate Certificates in College Counseling.

I am passionate about providing access to opportunities for youth to realize their potential and dreams. I love working with adolescents! There is never a dull moment and I learn from them every day.
