A-I truly enjoy teaching the juniors this year. I love the intellectual discussions and insights that the students have at this point in their educational careers.

A- I love to read, write and cook! I actually have a book being published this year, entitled: Joyful Journeys: Sacred Pauses with God. My passion has always been writing and speaking on matters of spirituality! But, whipping up a new recipe or opening up a new book also makes me super excited.

A-I look forward to seeing my students! They teach me and inspire me everyday!
Q-What person do you look up to?
A-I look up to my husband. He is truly the best person I have ever known and he always challenges me to be the best version of myself.
