I knew I wanted to help people at a young age. I began my college career in Rochester (upstate), NY specializing in children and families in social work. Out of college I began working in a residential treatment center as a social worker with teenagers. After a few years, an opportunity of change arose...I became a teacher of karate! I had been practicing karate since I was a young adult and had grown in my confidence, self-control and determination.
Still, my heart was connected to helping people. After only a year and a half, I found myself working as a manager of a foster care program. As my personal journey continued, I realized I wanted to work with the population of people that "want" to be better instead of being forced to change. Fast forward to now, here in the Panhandle of FL, where the weather is beautiful, impacting lives of those who have a motivation to better themselves.
