One of the great things I learned at Humboldt is resiliency. I use this skill everyday while living in the country of Kuwait.

I am home- schooling my 9 year old daughter and teaching Nutrition and Sewing classes to local and foriegn children living abroad.

It is amazing to use my degree in a foreign land to help improve the quality of life for children in a developing country, over run by fast food chains and a lack of nutrition education.
