As a mother of four, I've always been curious about the idea of balancing work and family life.

That moment ignited a spark within me, pushing me to continue exploring other possibilities of aligning my career with my responsibilities as a mother. The journey was far from smooth, filled with both highs and lows.
Realizing that customer service was no longer fulfilling, I began a journey of self-discovery. Through self-assessment, I uncovered my strengths, leading me to a rewarding career in Instructional Design.
