She shares her compassion for people as well as her passion for education and encouragement during these “interesting” times today.
Her philosophy is simple: Life hands us many experiences and that adversity is a great teacher. Knowledge is indeed power in our lives, but as it empowers us, it also requires that we do what is right and good for others.
Through personal trials and experiences, much has been learned and it is a joy and an honor to share the knowledge gained.
