Favorite achievement? Being a social worker for 10 years and working with runaway and homeless youth.
Who would you most like to meet and why? I would like to meet Katherine Hepburn. She was an accomplished woman who wasn’t afraid to break gender norms and expectations. A true feminist of her era.
What do you do like to do to unwind? I like to practice yoga to destress, recharge, and release the stressors from life and work.
It is an amazing gift…..To be a yoga teacher and a social worker. I feel blessed every day for the journey my life has taken.
