Professional Biography

I really feel fortunate to have been able to get my different degrees and work abused and socially defected kid.; I really enjoy working with people because if you can help some one you feel so good about it. Especially the kids; I had a chance to work with the ones that never had a real family. If you did something for them they where so thankful, just the smallest thing made them very happy. To have seen this up close and personal makes you appreciate life in a different way.”
