About Me: I began my career in education back in 2001, teaching in an after school program and substituting while attending college.  I started teaching the summer of 2007 in a Sacramento elementary school. I have been teaching here at SAVA since the winter of 2007! I was born in Sacramento and I spent part of my childhood living in Ireland.  I have three daughters; one who attends SAVA, one who graduated from SAVA in the December of 2014, and a toddler. I have been married to my high school sweetheart since 1996. Together we have a lot of pets!

Interests: I enjoy reading, collecting insects, and learning new things. I attend an anime convention every year with my family and I love going on adventures with them. We consider ourselves geeks in my family, with sci-fi, science, books and history being big parts of our lives!
