I am excited to be returning to Live Oak and continuing to assist our administrative team in providing the necessary resources for students to be successful along their academic journey. Implementing essential tools to help your child find success in this rapidly changing world is crucial in your child's education. This year I will be serving as Live Oak TSA-Admin on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I am also excited to be returning to the classroom teaching 2nd grade on Thursdays and Fridays.

I am originally from Orange County in Southern California. I attended the University of California at San Diego obtaining my Bachelor of Arts in Economics with minors in East Asian History and Chemistry. After working in the banking industry, I decided to return to school at Cal State Fullerton where I earned my Teaching Credential. I obtained my administrative credential along with my Master's in Educational Leadership from California State University, East Bay.

Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my wife, 2 daughters and son. We enjoy spending time in the great outdoors and taking trips exploring this great state.

In my role, I will be assisting the administrative team, further developing our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) program Sanford Harmony, supporting students, and coaching teachers.

I will be serving as Live Oak TSA on Thursday and Friday. I will also be joining the 2nd grade team and be in the classroom Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. 

I grew up locally in Walnut Creek. I attended Saint Mary’s College where I received my Bachelor of Arts, Teaching Credential and Master of Arts in Teaching. I have been trained through Mindful Schools. 

In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, practicing yoga/mindfulness, and spending time with my husband Patrick and our son Mackinnon.
