Who am I? I am a lover of life! I wake up every day to relish in having a new
beginning. My passion is sharing how important our everyday attitudes are. As our attitude
goes, so goes our life. I have had the pleasure of experiencing much in life from traveling
throughout Europe, being a part of Toastmasters, to joining the UCLA pep squad as mascot,
Josephine Bruin, in the late 70’s during the John Wooden basketball dynasty.
I’m a lover of people! Being a high school English teacher, community college
professor, and First Lady in ministry, co-pastoring a small congregation with my husband,
has given me insights into what makes people tick and given me compassion for others. I have worn
many hats, (i.e.) wife, mother, teacher, and counselor.
I guess you could say I’m an optimist! I believe strongly that life is what you make it.
Educationally wise, I have obtained two master’s degrees, both in the field of education.
