Born and raised in South Florida, it may seem that my life has been spent slowly moving North eventually landing in Virginia. After Graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Science Education at the University of Florida, I moved to Atlanta and challenged myself further by working full time time while I earned Master degrees in Business Administration as well as  Health Administration.
