I was born in San Diego, California on Camp Pendleton. I come from a proud military family. There are many UH grads in our family. I have been a member of the Center for Diversity and Inclusion team for almost one year, but have been at the University of Houston for 35 years…it means a lot to work in a center where we receive everyone. My life motto is to embrace, understand, and be at peace and harmony with one another.
