When I was younger, school was challenging. I remember reading and writing being something that I never felt that I was ‘good’ at. However, this experience led to my passion for special education! When I discovered Learnstyle and the company’s mission, I decided that this was my opportunity to connect with students, to help them change their narrative for these young learners and share how assistive technology and understanding themselves could improve their experience at school.
While growing up, my hero was my grandmother. She was strong, resilient and taught me how to persevere through challenging times to develop a deeper sense of self.
I am passionate about connection. I thrive on connecting with people, to deepen relationships and develop a better understanding and awareness of self.

The children in this picture helped me to define what friendship meant in the younger years of my life. We spent every single day together. We had Street parties, pool parties, street games, every Halloween we coordinated our costumes and bbq’s in our front yards. It made the best childhood memories!
This was a picture taken with 2 of my very good friends before beginning the Mud Girl run. This was a charity fundraiser that I have done for the last few years to support cancer research. It is a tough and messy way to raise awareness!
In pursuit of greater self-awareness, I found mandala drawing. I was taught by an amazing artist that works at the AGO.
More about me.
Mandala, which is Sanskrit for “circle” or “discoid object,” is a geometric design that is very symbolic of many cultures. I draw these from scratch and meditate while creating repetitive shapes. It is a great way to calm the mind.
