While I have not served in the military, my brother served in the Marine Corps. and is a veteran of Desert Storm and my nephew serves in the Army Reserves and did a tour of duty in Afghanistan. My passion is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to reach their goals, by decreasing/eliminating barriers that stand in the way of student success. Great opportunities are often disguised as impossible situations. Don’t let those "situations" define who you are! I look forward to working with you!

I am fluent in Spanish, both verbal and written.
