10. If you work, what’s the most rewarding part about it?

It’s very rewarding to be part of a child’s life as they learn and grow. It melts my heart for a child to meet major milestones and to be there to witness it.

I am working on a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy, and would love to work with Families in any capacity.

12. If you could tell your younger self something, what would it be?

Listen to the wisdom of your elders! We may not always agree, but often times they have made mistakes for us. By taking heed, we can save ourselves a lot of unnecessary trouble.
