What I LOVE about my work is that it surrounds my husband and children with love. Every day I am blessed with energy to pray, cook, clean, knit, bake, study and focus on creating a peaceful, loving home for my family. This homemaker gig is hands down the most fulfilling!

What I love about my work is the chance it gives me to interact and help people. Working customer service, you really can take abuse here and there, but it does help shape you as a better person over time.

There are so many things I love about my work. I am a teaching artist in the Bay Area and I teach ages 3-13. What I love about teaching musical theatre is that I am seeing kids experience the art that has disappeared in so many schools due to budget cuts and also due to the fact that many people don’t take the arts seriously. I love the look my students get the first time they perform. This summer was my first time musical directing at the in the Bay area. We put on 4 shows within 8 weeks! I was super overwhelmed about it, because prior to this job, I had only done minor subbing, tutoring, and more retail than I’d like to admit to. However, as a musician, being able to be paid to do what I love for kids is such a rewarding and divine experience. I taught children this year that have never done musical theatre this year, some that have, and some that swore they hated it. By the end of the Summer, I saw some of the most shy kids come into their own and realize they had a voice. Even the ones that swore they didn’t like it, ended finding their voice as Techies! I love that my job constantly changes and that I get to watch these kids grow and discover new things. With musical theatre they are discovering themselves and let me tell you... to witness this is out of this world. Just when I think I’m being a solid teacher, THEY teach me more and show me how to be GREAT instead of good. ( I am also THE teacher that sneaks in a few lessons on Prince’s music. I can’t help it! The next generation needs to know lol) I was getting out of a very dark place before coming to the Bay this year so knowing I’m adding to the world and making it better everyday from the little I do is relieving and it feels like what beauty should feel like. Freeing.
I am also a musician and for the first time in a while, I’m not afraid to say it. Being a musician means you are always learning and you never get bored. I work my ass off and I’m proud of it 💪🏽💪🏽
Love and Be Wild!

I am an educator at a zoo, so my job is ALWAYS amazing! I love that I get to teach people about the environment, how we can affect real change for the earth and the animals upon it, and watching the curriculum I write become an amazing learning experience. I get to change minds about how we treat our planet. I love that my job allows me to be creative and gives me an insane amount of vacation time. But more than anything, my job is super unique in that when I am having an off day or a bad day, I can literally walk out to see our dolphins/elephants/walrus/whatever and I instantly feel much better!
