When I was spat out into the world at 18, I was terrified. I never had any real guidance throughout high school and even though I had always been told I should go to college, no one had told me how- so I didn't. But I have always loved learning, and much of what I have learned, I've learned by finding innovative ways to access information for free. I spent a lot of time in libraries as a young adult. (I still do as a not-as-young adult.) When I waited tables in my early career- I used to beg the bus people, other servers, and food runners at the restaurant to let me have their old textbooks after their semester finished. Then, after my shift ended, I would go home and spend my nights reading those textbooks and doing all the assignments. When I felt that I had the schedule and the financial ability to safely enroll in college, I finally did.
I am a first- generation college student hellbent on showing the world why you should bet on the scrapper.
I since have completed my associates in Liberal Arts and Bachelors of the Arts in Organizational Leadership at Arizona State University. My goal is pursue a masters degree in Organizational Development and Human Relations.
I am also trained from an accredited Enneagram school on the Enneagram, a personality typing system, and Enneagram coaching. I am currently working towards accreditation for myself. In addition, starting in the fall of 2023, I will be working towards integrative wellness coaching through the University of Vermont and preparation for certification through the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaches (NBHWC).
My educational journey is long and varied and never-ending. The desire for personal and professional growth are staples of my personality and I am constantly following curiosity to learn more about myself and my strengths and discover ways to help myself and others grow in ways I wasn't aware of before.
