I have been working at SAVA since the August 2013. During my years at SAVA I have held numerous positions: Teacher, Social Science Specialist, and currently I am the Enrollment Specialist. I was SAVA Assistant Basketball Coach for two years before becoming the Head Coach of the team. I grew up in Salinas, California. When I turned 5, I was diagnosed with a severe hearing loss that leads me to wear hearing aids. I am not the only one with hearing loss in my family; I also have a brother who is deaf.

Interests: In my free time I like to study Genealogy which is researching and putting together my family tree. I love to be out in the great outdoors doing either off-roading, camping, and especially hiking. I play on several softball teams during the week and I play on an adult baseball team on the weekend. I’m a HUGE San Francisco Giants fan.
