I’ve been on my own since the age of 15. I have been able to develop my skills in many areas, including real estate. I challenged myself in the field of culinary arts both for fun and a stress relief. This led to being awarded a scholarship to study abroad in Italy in the field of culinary arts from Contra Costa College Culinary Arts Program. My life has been rich, blessed and fulfilling in many ways.
