Being born and raised in Manhattan; I have always had an appreciation for the arts, music, museums, films, ballet, and worldly cultures. I lived in Los Angeles during my twenties, and I miss it to this day. I attended Saint Rose of Lima in Washington Heights, went to an all girls Catholic High School in the South Bronx, studied Art and Advertising Design, and participated in the RN Program in Downtown Brooklyn. I became a published poet by the age of 10, and enjoy writing to this day. I have also been a Licensed Nurse for 13 years now. Loving and caring for people is something I am very passionate about.
