My biggest impact has been consistency in the lives of children and youth who have not had adults show up for their holistic development across their ages and stages. Since I graduate school, I have served as a before-and after-school teacher, tutor, case manager, children’s ministry director, and a family support specialist. I have also had the pleasure of contributing to community-based continuities of care. Being a mentor was an integral part of my contributions. 10,000 Degrees showed me the power of mentorship by providing one with my scholarship as a college student.

Currently: Kids Life Coach, Educator & Author
