Growing up in the inner center streets of North Philadelphia, My experiences and enviroment naturally developed a passion inside for me to help others. I've worked in the social services field as well as the mental health and physical disability fields. As a youth sports were my outlet through high school and carried me to college. Giving back to the community is very important to me. I begin teaching and coaching several years ago and I have been very lucky and fortunate to have had a positive influence in the lives of youth and hope to continue to do so for many years to come.
