After starting my career in education and moving into business operations, my answer to the question - what do you want to be when you grow up ? - has changed more times than I can count.

I was also a guest writer for I proudly serve as board member for the Elgin Young Professionals Network.

When I am not sitting in front of the computer, I enjoy playing board games, cooking, and spending time with my friends.

My life is constantly changing. Visit any of these sites to keep up with my journey.
