I was born and raised in Miami FL, and grew up in a diverse household with 3 other siblings. Our blended family is mixed racially from white, hispanic, to African American.
I moved to Tallahassee, FL in 2011 to attend Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) where I received my Bachelors in Nursing. I also hold two minors in Mathematics and Chemistry from Florida State University (FSU). I worked in the Emergency Room at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital for 4+ years, and held certifications for PALS, ACLS, BLS, TNCC, and CPI (Crisis Prevention Intervention) which specializes in nonviolent communication.
My time in the hospital afforded me the opportunity to practice the art of empathy in high stress, high pressure situations. As a lead consultant at New Rules Collective, I have now translated this practice into teaching empathy within our firm. Additionally, I oversee research, data collection, and data analysis.
I have a deep value for human life and connection with a passion to make room for human flourishing at an individual, societal, corporate, and national level.
