When I’m Not Working…

I am focusing on my doctoral studies in Education Policy and Leadership –HOWEVER – work-play-family balance is critical! So, I make every effort to ensure I allot time for personal travel and entertainment with family and friends.

My Guilty Pleasure is…

A tie between eating out and sleeping in – go figure! Enjoying a tasty seafood dish, refreshing drink and scrumptious dessert with a great friend is time well spent. 

If I Could be Anywhere in the World Right Now, it Would Be…

A beautiful beach!
