Working with children and families is inspirational to me. Passion is defined as any powerful or compelling notion or feeling.

Denis Diderot once said, “Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things.” In my soul I feel that children and families are the most beautiful creatures on the earth. I believe that it is through human relationships, connections, nurturing and love that we open the door to inspire greatness; inspire
potential in the soul. I love being a part of a system that focuses on strengths, hope, well being and resiliency. I hope to be a stepping stone, a planted seed, a part of someone’s journey that invites them to see their reflection and feel their greatness.
