Favorite things: I enjoy relaxing at home with family, attending church, listening to inspirational music, watching movies, and eating delicious food!

What I enjoy most about my job: I enjoy coming to work because I get to learn, share and grow in collaboration with awesome students and colleagues. As a first generation, low-income student with a disability, Seattle Central College was instrumental in helping me overcome many challenges in my academic, professional, and personal life. My passion is to assist students to successfully achieve their academic goals. "I am walking in the spirit of gratitude with Great Joy!!!” (pbs)
