• A Little About Me:


    I was born and raised in Walla Walla, WA. Most of my family is still there and I love to visit often.  My teaching career began in Las Vegas where I taught first grade for three years. Since my move to San Diego in 2006, I have taught grades K-6.  This will be my 16th year as a classroom teacher and I couldn’t be happier to be teaching 4th grade here at this amazing school, Solana Pacific.


    My hobbies include playing volleyball, watching and playing sports, running, reading, camping, yoga and traveling! I love exploring new places and trying new things.

    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
