What do you do for your own wellness?
Wellness is having balance and harmony. Wellness is feeling accepted and safe. Wellness is not only mental health but also essential in our physical, social, emotional and spiritual being. I sense my personal wellness when I feel whole and healthy. I implement self-care through daily exercise, prayer, reflection, and positive self-talk.
What do you love about working with students?
I love working with students because they have a level of energy and ambition that is unmatchable. I’m fascinated to learn about their passions and life goals.
I’ve been a resident of the Morgan Hill Community for over 17 years. I have ventured through all facets of education from being a preschool teacher to a college instructor and everything in between.
