I immigrated to the United States when I was 10. In High School I was an English Language Learner but I persevered and graduated from Piedmont Hills High School. I was rejected by UC Davis so I went to San Jose State. At SJSU, I Changed my Major once from Computer Science to Public Health and graduated in 2005. When I became a school counselor back with East Side Union High School District, I thought I would retire as one. However, my path took me from Silver Creek to Evergreen Valley, then to Foothill, and now I've been blessed and fortunate to be with the Cardinal Family here at Mt. Pleasant.
I love to travel and have been to 4 continents. I was lucky enough to see 3 Popes in person (one of them is a saint now).
Through my experiences I have three philosophies that I hold near and dear: 1) Each and every person can succeed. 2) It is OK to Fail. 3) Everyone deserves a 2nd Chance to change their narratives.
