I'm originally from the West Indies, but Springfield, Mass., is where I call home.

Diversity is all the array of characteristic and complexities, which makes up our community.
In the plant, animal, and microbe world, diversity contributes to the strength and survivability of those groups, and is truly valued. However, we as humans don't always recognize the value of diversity. In a college environment, diversity adds to the academic and educational strength of the institution.
I receive inspiration from many places: from nature, from books, from personal narratives students have shared with me. It's not hard to be inspired working at HCC. Being engaged and enabling students to write their biographies is inspiring!
Seeing students reach their full potential, and being able to assist them on their journey.
I really value the earnest endeavor of students, with all the challenges and apprehensions they face.
