Early Years Counselor-GEMS International School, Al Khail
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, U.S.A. In 2001, I obtained a Bachelors in Psychology and in 2006 a Masters in Counseling. I started my career in education almost 20 years ago in the US as a PreK – 2nd-grade teacher. My passion for working with children brought me to the UAE in 2011 as a teacher with the Abu Dhabi Education Council. For six years, I worked closely with Emirati students, parents, and teachers. Throughout my career, I have acquired experience as a presenter, team leader, school counselor, and most recently as a mindfulness teacher.
Outside of work, you’ll find me hosting various events, performing as a Vocalist, and curating my podcast.
