As a young child, I was involved in community outreach. First through weekly nursing home visitation I met so many amazing seniors. People that just wanted someone to come and listen. So at 10 I went to the nursing home and heard the stories of old Hollywood from those that remembered Gone with the Wind being released. Though they have all since passed, I got such a great sense of community and love from those that I met I carried that on throughout my life. Constantly looking for ways to help those around me. First and foremost, I am a mother of an amazing 7 year old son. He is the driving force behind everything I do. So making his community a better place through volunteering has allowed me to marry my love of community support and make things better for my child and other children around him.
My son is the reason I am a residential specialist. I specialize in helping current homeowners sell their home, perspective buyers seamless purchase their new home, and investors turn their capitol into investments. I have studied every part of the real estate process to make sure every aspect is covered for my clients. Building a future of helping others achieve their homeownership goals and being able to truly be available for my son has made this career choice a perfect match.
Previously, I was a history teacher. I earned my Masters of Arts in teaching at Western Governors University. My passion for my students and history allowed me to engage with my students. I still strongly believe that in order to really shape the future we need to shape our youth. So I am currently involved in cub scouts and the PTA.
I believe strong leadership and great communities are built by people who work together to build them up. Compassion and caring needs to start with me. I take the time to add to the community through community outreach events. Every event makes our community in the Hampton Roads a better place for everyone.
So many times we look at the systemic problems of the world and want to find something or someone to blame. Instead, I strongly believe the way to fix systemic problems is to empower our youth to be the strong caring leaders this world needs. I focus my efforts currently with the Cub Scouts and local PTA. I have been involved in Girl Scouts and special olympics previously.
We all may have different musical interests it transcends every race, culture, and era. My musical taste is very eclectic but what I enjoy most is listening to live music as much as possible. It can invoke every emotion and bring out our passion. When I had students who had struggle with material I turned it into a song.

Math 2 Instructor
Glenmont Job Corps
Empowering 16-24 year olds who wanted the chance to attain their GED and get a marketable skill. Through mathematics instruction in my class I prepared them for their GED. I also worked closely with the trade instructors to make sure that the math skills were in line with what they needed to learn for their specific trade. During my time there, the math department, had the highest gains on The Adult Basic Education Test that the center had ever had. I was recognized for those gains, smart board implementation, and thorough case noting. Those came in the form of awards and articles written about me in the schools newspaper.
