My family is my world! Day to day I balance my time between my two children, home, school and work. Gabriel is 13 years old and Jaelyn is 9. Between soccer, guitar, gymnastics and swimming; it takes our time, but it's worth it. I love all the extra activities because I firmly believe that the one thing no one can ever be able take away from you is something that you have learned.
For the last 10 years I have worked for the Lakewood Municipal Court. Lakewood Municipal Court has honorable value to the public. Lakewood does not just punish a defendant for their crime or violation of the law; Lakewood provides help, resources, mandates class and/or other services. I believe Lakewood encourages defendants to learn from their mistake and lessens the likelihood for them to reoffend.
The city of Lakewood is the primary reason I returned to college. After a very long day in court and with the help of my supervisors encouragement I knew I was ready for something more. Although, I'm grateful for my position in court, I believe Public Administration or management is the next step for me. I must admit that every class at Front Range Community College makes me nervous. Although, I'm eager to learn the concepts; I fear I won't be able to keep up with the work load. Over the past year, I have only taken online courses because of my busy lifestyle. I'm interested in Microeconomics because I would like to compare it to Macroeconomics and use the concepts in our current economy. (The picture below was taken on "Take Your Child to Work" Day)
Another point I should make is my INSANE love for travel. Although, I have only been to a handful of places; I absolutely love to talk, hear and think about traveling. Hearing others experiences and stories makes me happy because it reminds me just how big the world really is.
