Extremely proud to be a part of an amazing team of driving instructors at AAA Driving Academy. I take pride in being proactive in the driving community, making the streets of Las Vegas safer. Being a mother, I understand the concern that parents have when their child is preparing for their license. My goal, each day, is giving them peace of mind and my students, the skills and confidence needed while driving. When my students succeed, I succeed!
