    I was born in Dallas, Texas and spent a large part of my life in Miami, Florida.  Living in Florida was a beautiful experience,as it introduced me to a variety of cultures.  I left Miami loving the beautiful diversity that makes the country in which we live. 
    I developed a love for students during my time as an English teacher and higher education professional, working in undergraduate admissions.  I am in my 19th year as an educator and I love youth. They keep you honest and aware! Seeing the joy in students as they reach their educational goals provides me the growth and reward necessary to approach each day with excitement and a ceaseless commitment to student success.  As long as we act in the best interest of students, then we will always be successful.
     I am entering my 10th year at Uplift North Hills and look forward to every year with a new and vibrant class. I am grateful to be here with your children. They are all unique, special, and a joy to work with. They do not simply recite the North Hills Preparatory student pledge, they live it and inspire us all along the way.
