  1. Why did you choose this profession? 

I am a born nurturer. This is a quality that had been ingrained in my spirit by both parents, that we take care of our young. 


2. What does receiving this award mean to you?

My mom was a brilliant woman who never got to fulfill her dream of college. She took care of anyone but herself. I hope she knows that I carried on her dream and mine. 

5. What would you tell other women about overcoming obstacles? 

We all have value. Don’t allow the negativity in your environment to break your spirit or take the light that resides in us all.

It took me seventeen years, on and off, to achieve my academic goals. I did this while raising my children, caregiving, and working.

I feel triumphant being able to be in a position to help others who face the same struggles I have and to uplift the next generation.
