Why are you passionate about working at NIET?

NIET had a profound impact on me when I was a junior high school principal of a TAP school. The support I received during this time gave me the tools I needed to build capacity among my instructional staff, which positively impacted student outcomes.  

What do you do in your free time?

Most of my free time is spent working out at the gym. I also enjoy reading novels, shopping, and socializing with friends.
