I was born in the Philippines, migrated to the United States and became a US Citizen in 2007. Married to Ben Weesen, I have three beautiful children, ages 16, 11, 10. My love for flying and airplanes motivated me to earn a student pilot certificate and I am on the path of earning my pilot’s license. Serving on the Board of the EAA Chapter 1158; I am the Assistant Coordinator for the Young Eagles Program; a member of Cedarburg Lions Club and serve as a certified vision screener. I am an avid gardener and enjoy the outdoors. I have worked as a Health Care provider for over twenty-one years. My passion
for caring for people has compelled me to earn my Nursing degree at Moraine Park Technical College.
I was honored to be selected as the first MPTC National Newman Civic Fellow awardee. I joined the student government to have a greater impact not only at the college level but in the community as a whole. MPTC has provided a great foundation to help me become the person I am today. I look forward to continuing to create a strong support network for my fellow students. Something fun about me is that I enjoy and appreciate different kinds of music and I love to sing. I swam with dolphins and whale sharks, even though I would not consider myself a strong swimmer. A personal quote of mine is, “it doesn’t matter if your glass is half full or half empty, your glass is always refillable.”
