To obtain a position as a teacher / Educational Tecnhnologist in a forward-thinking secondary education institution.

My entire professional life has centered on people. My goals have been to be dispassionate, review the situation, pose good questions and resolve the conflict to the best of my ability. From working with veterans in the largest veterans district in Florida, to lobbying legislators and state leaders concerning legislative proposals, to guiding students and parents through the educational process, my professional life has focused on pouring myself into the lives of others to help them achieve their goals.
