What do you enjoy most about tutoring at Thinking Organized?
I love to watch my clients transform their lives through our strategies. Seeing my students grow in confidence and accomplish their personal and school-related goals inspires me.

What has been your greatest personal and/or professional achievement and why?
I am always proud when a client or client’s family tells me how much my help meant to them. It is the most rewarding part of my job!

What interesting fact would your clients & colleagues be most surprised to learn about you?
I am a huge foodie and will eat just about anything. I sometimes go to farmers’ markets to pick up fruits or vegetables I have never seen before and challenge myself to discover the best way to prepare them. I especially love to try new foods when I travel; one of the strangest things I’ve ever eaten was live ants right off of a tree in the Amazon Rainforest!
