Education: I am originally from Davis, California. I currently attend San Diego State University where I am hoping to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in the spring of 2013.
Experience: I previously worked for four years at summer camps in which children with and without disabilities attended. From this experience I gained insight on how to better communicate and interact with children whom have special needs. I also volunteer at Alexa's Place which is the Autism Center for children at the Rady Children's Hospital.
Hobbies & Skills: I have played basketball and softball since I was in elementary school. I also love to dance and I enjoy any kind of outdoor activity.
Why ClubXcite? I am so honored to be a part of ClubXcite. I genuinely feel that this program influences every child that it reaches in a positive way. I hope to make a difference, big or small, in the lives of the people whom I come into contact with. Working with children is not only something I love to do, but it is my passion.
