I was born in Miami FL and moved to VA about 7 years ago. I live a busy life style and it's easy to get distracted and to be able to see what matters most. This is one of the many reason why I joined SCA. I enjoy playing sports, such as mountain biking, soccer, softball, rollerblading, swimming, and hiking. I am an EMT for the state of VA and I teach CPR for the American Red Cross. I am also an intern for the Newport News Police Dept. I worked in the investigations unit helping the dectivities solve cases. Before SCA I was a preschool teacher at a learning center in York County Virginia. I started working with the school age children for a couple of years then I eventually found my place with the preschool children. While working I attended a Thomas Nelson Community College and graduated with my associates degree in Social Science. I would like to continue my education with paramedic/nursing certification in the future. I went to Montana last summer with Northern Virginia Community College geology dept and had the pleasure studying Montana's feature and geologic structures. I have a strong passion for conservation and I believe that we will make a difference for years to come. The outdoors is my home and playground.
