She came from humble beginnings, as she is the daughter of a Migrant FieldWorker, raised half of her childhood in a single parent household with four siblings. She grew up in extreme poverty. Her family at times was homeless, sleeping in a vehicle and going in the evenings to shelters and churches to eat; however ,she and her siblings overcame that adversity and went on to excel in K-12 school graduating in the top 20, numerous times being on the Dean's List in college, and in her profession as an educator. She went on to be recognized and honored in 2016-2017 as the "Teacher of the Year for the County of San Bernardino and Riverside" due to her devotion to her students, teaching style and her field of work as a Professional Development Presenter for her former district with great emphasis on Close Reading.
She is about teaching human compassion and showing grace, due to the circumstances that she endured as a child and adult. She enjoys gardening and performing community service in the evenings in the city of Menifee and Romoland. Her devotion to such causes enabled her to be recognized and missed by the community partnerships she formed in San Bernardino with the Salvation Army Christmas Angel Tree, Womens Shelter for Battered Women, and Convalscent home(s) which she plans on fostering within Riverside County. The reason she does this is "to show that there is more good in the world then we believe, we are like Aliens, people doubt we exist but we do."
