I was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and lived in that area for 32 years. Currently, I live in Houston and am a stay at home parent to two children ages five and three, two dogs, and one husband. I have a BS in Exceptional Student Education from Barry University. The first five years out of college I worked as a teacher for preschool students with special needs. While at that job I earned an MA in Library and Information Science from the University of South Florida. I went on to work as an elementary school librarian for nine years. I am also a certified group fitness instructor and worked for two years coaching for Baby Boot Camp West Houston. I enjoy working out, reading, and having fun with my family.
