Brief Bio: I am a mom to 2 kids (10yo boy and 6 1/2 yo girl) who I hope one day will be LVA legacies 🙂 I am happily married to my husband of over 5 years. I work for the City of Las Vegas for their Business License Compliance division as their internet investigator. I am currently a senior at Nevada State College as a double major in Public Admin in Law Enforcement & Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. So you could say I am pretty busy. I also am the current Mrs Silver State Regency International along with being a pageant mommy to my daughter who is Tiny Miss Nevada.

Skills that being a part of the LVA community gave me: Being an IS major taught me about other cultures and how to embrace those cultures. Not to mention LVA with its diverse student body embodied inclusivity. I continued to carry those traits throughout my life and my jobs in customer service and hospitality
