What I enjoy most about Brookview: Of course, I love the children and their excitement about learning. I also love that Brookview feels like home. The Brookview community is supportive, nurturing and home to a wonderfully diverse population of some of the most incredible people on earth.
I love to cook and try out new recipes. I love to make people laugh so joking around and being silly are things I do every day.
