A little more about me…(the fun stuff)!
- Proud #Wildcat from the University of Arizona and a graduate from the University of Phoenix.
- Love writing, research, and learning.
- A #planneraddict and if you don’t know what that is, just throw the hashtag up on Instagram and you will know right away. 🙂
- I have a beautiful cocker spaniel who is 9 years old and she is the craziest, but best dog ever.
- Found my greatest passion after I became a mother for the first time and then it just grew stronger after I became a mother the second time. Teaching, learning, and trying to understand myself/others became my mission.
- My mother and father are my greatest influences.
- There are so many women in history and today who influence me and I look up to. I can’t list them all, but I am so thankful that we have so many strong, powerful, intelligent women to learn lessons from.
- Wholeheartedly believe that we can learn more from others and ourselves than we really think is possible. One of the greatest powers that we have as humans is our ability to reflect and think critically. We can learn from ours and other people’s mistakes, and we can learn from ours and other people’s successes. When we spend time understanding how our minds work and why we think the way we do, we can do more of what we want to do and what makes us happy. I have seen this happen with the thousands of students I have taught in college classes and individuals I have worked with. Reflection, connection, and collaboration are three important elements to lead us where we want to go with our lives.
