I'm a current Instructor with the University of Phoenix (San Antonio, TX) whereby I teach various courses, one of my favorites being Critical Thinking. 

Further, as an Adult Educator, I have taught countless people in a Fortune 500 company to speak English.   In addition, I have traveled thousands of miles as a Professional Speaker, impacting the lives of thousands of high school students and education professionals, preparing students for college, careers, & success. Currently, I am a Coordinator of Student Success with San Antonio College whereby I teach students about Financial Literacy and help them  graduate with little to no educational debt.
