As fifth generation Floridian, I grew up in the south west of the state on a cattle ranch, with orange groves, blueberry fields riding horses and working with 4-H and FFA projects while being schooled with my parents who were optimistic entrepreneurs. I could spend a semester teaching the students at CIS the valuable lessons I learned being raised on a farm but the three most important life lessons I am grateful for are Dedication, Determination and Discipline.
Experience in Resident Life.
As a resident assistant during my undergraduate studies at Texas A & M Commerce I worked with freshman honors, greek life, family housing and international students. I led staff training's, bi-weekly programs for my residents and served as a mentor and leader in my community. I was selected by my colleagues as the resident assistant of year for each year I served. My desire to one day work at an international boarding school was born from this experience because I saw first hand the importance of a healthy, positive and supportive community and the unique opportunity to work in a living and learning environment.
