What are you most excited about for our 10 Year Anniversary

As the Marketing Director, I first hand get to re-live so many memories daily for social media! I'm excited to help present our past and present to our students, parents, and followers!

If you could have a superpower what would you choose?

To control time! An extra hour or two a day would be pretty helpful!

If you could have dinner with any two people from history, alive or dead, who would you choose?

Tim Burton, I'm absolutely fascinated with his artistic process and would love to just hear him talk about his thoughts! Lucile Ball, I was obsessed with her as a child. I just love everything about her.

Who is your role model and why?

My mama! She is my best friend. I model everything in my life from everything she shown me. I love her.

Sicily. Family, beaches, architecture, history, and amazing gluten free food!

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Socks. I think they are completely disgusting. I only own like 3 pairs of socks lol

How do you define success?

Success to me is finding joy and growth in whatever you are trying to

accomplish. It can be as simple as being able to slow down, relax and just be in the moment (which can actually be pretty challenging). Success also means working hard and not giving up to me. Trying my best, looking at obstacles from different angles, and continually challenging my self to grow.

Describe yourself in three words

Driven, confident, loving
