Favorite place to travel: I love Disney! I go to Disneyland every year and enjoy the magic. It is my absolute favorite place! I hope to see every Disney park around the world someday.

What you love about working with children: I love working with children because they can be the best teachers. They keep my spirit young and nothing is better than knowing you have made a difference in a child’s life.
