While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were

First and foremost; God is why I am here today. When I was in the trenches and barely holding on; you took my hand and led me through the darkness revealing the light. To my Dad thank you for sticking it out. I am glad you get to see your three sons all graduate from college. To my mom thank you for your patience and constant support. GE thank you for always believing in me. We did it.

My favorite SMC memory is

The Turkey Cheddar at Cafe Louie... RIP TO THE LEGEND.

I'm looking forward to most

THRIVING while taking on opportunities to help those who have disabilities overcome and become their truest selves. We all have our deficiencies and that is what makes each and every one of us an asset to the world. Also bringing support and services to the veterans in higher education at SMC as well as the communities we live in.
"With every breath, the old moment is lost; a new moment arrives. We exhale and we let go of the old moment. It is lost to us. In doing so, we let go of the person we used to be. We inhale and breathe in the moment that is becoming. In doing so, we welcome the person we are becoming. We repeat the process. This is meditation. This is renewal. This is life.”
