A life-long student of personal growth, I’m constantly inspired by the wisdom and courage of my many formal and informal teachers. I have been told to have an uncanny ability to build leaders, happiness, success and deep, lasting satisfaction in life. I believe that effective leadership starts with self-awareness. When people are clear on who they are and the distinct value they deliver, they are then in a better position to leverage their unique talents to inspire, motivate, influence and make change possible.
I am a Special Education teacher. I work with children who need support in the classroom. I love being a part of children’s growth, helping them regulate their emotions and feel safe with the adults around them.

My first Mashpia was my beloved and wise mother ob’m. She had far from an easy existence from birth to her untimely passing, but what she instilled in me was this fierce Emunah that everything is from Hashem, nothing happens without a reason. Always laughing, she took what life gave her and served Hashem with love.
From her I learned the poignant, accurate phrase “What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.”
This is how I work to channel my own thoughts and actions. It may take a while to understand where it's coming from, but once you do, everything becomes so much easier to bear.
