Why are you passionate about working at NIET?

I am passionate about working at NIET because I believe in the vision and have seen with my own eyes the success of what can be accomplished when the focus is on educator excellence and student achievement.

What was your favorite subject in school and why?

It wasn't until high school that I found my favorite subject would be science. I needed an explanation for everything and with science I could get that. There were theories, research and even opportunities for me to experiment with projects that led to my love for this discipline.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy working out. When I work out in the mornings, it helps me get focused for the day and increases my energy level. If I have an evening workout, it helps me unwind to have a relaxing evening and plan my schedule for the upcoming day. When I'm not in the gym you can find me reading a book or in the kitchen baking.
