I am a native to the island of Jamaica and a Houstonian growing up.  I am the middle sibling of three and a daughter to an amazingly strong brown skinned woman. Her drive propelled us to the "Land of opportunity. Her faith guided us and her moxie made us strong. I began my elementary education in the states in 2nd grade. Growing up in Alief Texas wasn't easy. In search of a fresh start, my family and I moved out to newly developing city of Katy when I was fifteen. After gaining my High School Diploma from Katy High School, I ventured to the University of Houston Main Campus with my sights set on becoming an Industrial Engineer. After six years of course work, a few internships, and a shift in my career pathway I joyfully completed my course work. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Supply Chain & Logistics Technology and a Minor in Dance on May 10th 2008 from the University of Houston. After graduation I attempted a few industry temp positions but was unsatisfied. I longed for a career that would grant me interpersonal relationships, flexibility, onward thinking, continued development, growth and movement.  I then became a full-time contract dance instructor for Vibe Dance and Fitness in Houston. I taught a variety of dance genres: Ballet/Tap combination, Creative Movement, Jazz, Hip-Hop, beginner Ballroom and Salsa classes. After five years of teaching dance, I realized that educating others has been a passion I couldn't ignore any longer and becoming certified was necessary. Through A+ Texas Teachers I completed the program and earned my certification in Early Childhood through sixth, Special Education through twelfth, and English as a Second Language during the month of February 2013. During this time of transition, I gained two years as an Early Childhood Paraprofessional at Gabriela Mistral and three years of experience as a Prekindergarten educator at MacGregor Elementary School through HISD.

After teaching for five years, I returned to school and obtained my Masters in Business Administration-Energy Leadership from Texas A&M Texarkana. At the age of 31 I finally began my own family. We purchased our home in Klein and our family has grown. With all that has happened in my life, I was uncertain I would be strong enough, wise enough or equipped to become a Mom. Reflecting on my Mother's teachings, love and strength, I know now that she has been preparing me all my life for this. So I walk forward with assurance and joy as a wife and a proud Mother to two wonderful beings. Family life...never a dull moment! Things are always in constant motion. There's plenty to do and learn.  I am currently employed by Spring Independent School District and have been for the past four years. June will mark my fifth year in this district. I am also a part of MDSA as a part-time dance instructor. Outside of work, I possess talents in fitness, cross country, volleyball, basketball, dance, gardening, cooking, theater, scrap-booking, and art. I am passionate, grateful and overjoyed to be able to share my knowledge, experiences, and talents with others.
