I am a native who has worked in CUSD as a teacher since 2005. I worked in the Advertising and Public Relations industry before deciding to follow my personal passion for teaching and helping children achieve their highest potential as students and as the future of our country!

When I am not at school, I love to hang out with my husband & two young children; they sure keep me on my toes...=) when I have down-time I enjoy reading books, spending time outdoors, swimming and yoga.
