I am Naomi. I embody persistence, bravery, and love. I am a knowledge seeker, and love to help students work their way to their goals. I am a chef at heart, I love watching MMA, and training in Muay Thai and boxing. I am also a mom of three, and still have not mastered the art of putting a diaper on correctly. I welcome challenges, as they only make me stronger. I have learned and continue to learn how to navigate the extroverted world and spaces that were not necessarily built for me. With that, I am an ethnic studies and anthropology college instructor and hope to be a university professor one day.
