I am an enthusiast and a lover of the outdoors. After being born and spending seven years in the Micronesian archipelago of Palau, I moved with my family to Guam. There, I developed an even stronger interest and passion for the environment as well as outdoor activities. From Guam, I moved to Texas to graduate high school and continue my academic career. I graduated from Texas A&M with Bachelor degrees in Biomedical Sciences and Psychology, and then moved to New York City to obtain my Masters in Neuroscience from New York University.
I took the first steps of my medical career in the Long Island Jewish Hospital, where working as a surgeon assistant, I provided care and attention to patients, and assisted in critical neurological operations. However, as I dove deeper into the medical space, I realized that my true passion was not within the walls of the hospital, but in the academic, physical and health development of children. Following this change of passion, I left the hospital to join a family in Connecticut and act as a nanny for their three young girls – ages 8, 13, 15, for whom I cared for over a year and a half. Throughout my stay with the family I was always delighted to be a participant and witness of the achievements and successes of the girls both, at school and at home. My successful and enriching experiences thus far in the field of childcare have taken me to seek further opportunities, and I would be delighted to continue playing an active role in the development and growth of New York City families.
