Being part of Safa British School makes me proud up to this day. I consider SBS a happy place where I can always be motivated and positive. Everyone here is welcoming and ready to lend a helping hand.

About Me


I am a mom of a teenager and a toddler. By this I mean, all of my days are full of play and teen talks! I used to play lots of computer games. I recently enjoyed playing PUBG. I also play basic guitar and likes to jam with my friends whenever we can. Nowadays I started to enjoy chilling at home, enjoy long drives and crafting. I still want to discover other things that can make my time worthwhile. My dream is to travel around the world and explore cultures! 

My Experience

I was born and raised in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines. I graduated from St. Jude College Manila and got my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing in 2007. I passed my licensure examination and officially became a nurse in 2008. I started working in Dubai in 2014 and I have been a school nurse since 2015. Before SBS, I have worked in 2 well known international schools with more than 3,000 students. Over the years, I have developed skills that helped me become an effective school nurse. Keeping our school community safe and healthy has always been my main goal. I am certified in BLS, PALS, Infection Control, and Safeguarding and among many others.
