I don’t leave home without?
Something to pick my hair up with (With the Miami heat it is a must!), and my eye glasses.
What qualities do you admire in a teacher?
I admire a teacher who is always willing to help their students achieve their goals. I also admire when teachers create a comfortable, and warm environment that students do not feel as though they need to amount to anything other than themselves.

I am an expert in…?
Anatomy/Exercise Science. The subject has always had a place in my heart. I love how the body reacts to movements and how your body mechanics effect your daily life. Whether it involves simple movements in classes or the most intricate movements in classes; I am always astonished how the body will always conform to movement.
On any Saturday night you will most likely find me at…?
Meditating. Reading. Watching Netflix and catching up on my latest show. Hanging out with friends. Line dancing…Yes, line dancing with cowboy boots and all!
