WHO AM I:      Wife and Mother of five; Born in Kissimmee, FL.; Raised in Orlando, FL.

EDUCATION:  Graduate of Maynard Evans High School, Orlando, FL.  Graduated, Summa Cum Laude, with a B.S. Degree in Human Services from Kaplan University

HOBBIES:        Writing, Spending time with family, exercising and helping others any way that I can. 

WHY I CHOSE EDUCATION: My desire for youth began 20 years ago as a middle school Math tutor and Camp Counselor.  During that time, I realized the joy I felt spending time developing and assisting youth.  As an adult, I have been privileged to serve youth from Infancy through High School as a Church Youth Director, Childcare Provider, Mentor, Athletic Coach and Tutor.  It was this joy that lead me to pursue a career in Education.  I have fulfilled positions as a Teacher, Guidance Counselor, Principal, and School Accreditation Coordinator. I wish to apply the acquired knowledge and experiences gained to influence youth to cultivate change in their lives and their communities.



WHO AM I:      Husband and Father of five; Native of Orlando, FL. 

EDUCATION: Graduate of Oak  Ridge High School, Orlando, FL.  B.S. Degree in Business Administration from Mercyhurst University in Erie, PA. 

HOBBIES:        Reading, Exercising, Spending time with family and Sports

WHY I CHOSE EDUCATION: Professionally, I succeeded in Retail Management for over 15 years.  However, my professional success did not equate to the fulfillment of purpose I experienced while working with youth.  Personally, I worked with youth as a Minister, mentor, coach and community outreach participant for 20 years. Ten years ago, I made  the decision to pursue a full-time career in education.  Over this time, I filled multiple positions to include: Teacher, Administrator, Summer Program Director and Dean of Students.  I wish to take the experiences and knowledge acquired personally and professionally to empower, educate and equip the students of VCLA to reach their full potential in every aspect of life.
