What was your proudest moment?
My proudest moment can’t be contained in one moment. It is the compilation of many moments where I have surrendered and allowed myself to be guided by God to places I have never imagined, both literally and figuratively.
What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
I like going to the movies and playing pool. I just bought some roller skates! So maybe that will become my new favorite thing.
What drew you to Sound Discipline?
Sound Discipline is definitely one of the places that I allowed myself to be guided towards. From my first introduction to Sound Discipline, via a job posting, it has felt like home. While researching Sound Discipline, I was struck by the vision for mutual respect, dignity, and belonging for every child. I loved the emphasis on connection and making sure the message of love gets through to children through how we engage with them.
