I was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, and attended Kapaun Mount Carmel and Newman University. I graduated with degrees in English and Secondary Education.

One of my greatest joys is learning new things and sharing that knowledge with others. I find fulfillment in helping others through teaching, which is my daily goal and a testament to my desire to make a positive impact. I love being involved in the Vietnamese community of Wichita. I have a passion for undoing discrimination and helping people find good homes.
