I’ve worked for Orange County Public Schools for 14 years as a Substitute Teacher for Early Childhood Development Exceptionality students ranging from Pre-K through 8th grade. It was both fulfilling and rewarding and warmed my heart as I made a difference each day in a child’s life.

I was offered a professional and personal opportunity to grow and work in the mental health field as a Front Office Administrator which I accepted and worked for many years along side top notch Psychiatrists and Therapists where I have learned so much and will continue to learn and grow in the field. I am happy to say I have now joined Two Spirit and look forward to many years making a positive contribution to an empowering company that makes a difference to not just one but every person’s life.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending each and every moment with my family. I believe family is your most important asset, no amount of money or success can take the place of your loved ones. Be kind, loving and accepting of one another for tomorrow is not promised.
