About Me: My first job as a teacher was at Highlands High School where I taught Reading and Freshman English and coached soccer. In the summer time I worked as a whitewater river guide. I moved to San Francisco for several years where I worked primarily as a Program Director at a community center where I designed youth and family programs in addition to teen travel camps. Eventually life brought me back to Sacramento where started teaching again at Sacramento Job Corps before joining the team at SAVA in the fall of 2016, a move I could not be happier about.

Interests: I enjoy family time, nature, gardening, playing and watching sports.
