I graduated from the University of Central Florida (UCF) with a Bachelors in Hospitality Management, with a minor in Marketing. I received my Masters in Educational Leadership from UCF and my MBA from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.
I have worked in Education now for over 5 years and tutored since I was in high school. I really enjoy the interactions I have with the students on a daily basis. Today, I am a Senior Advisor at Miami Dade College. I specifically work with First Time in College Students. During my off time, I teach, enjoy the beach and spending time with my husband and our dog.
