  • The language that she speaks best is Portuguese! Everyone and everything in her dreams (even her dog Charlie) speaks Portuguese!

  • Her favorite color is pink (have you seen our website!).
  • She loves to play Candy Crush on her phone.
  • She loves shoes (don’t tell her husband).
  • She loves reading, scuba diving, water skiing, and sometimes, just doing nothing.

Most of all she loves children, likes to make them laugh, and is constantly trying to learn more about them and their accomplishments. That includes her patients and her son, daughter, grandkids, and your child too!
