I was raised in a family of 7, in a small town called Valley Center. I am also a Cupeno Indian from the Pala Band of Mission Indians. I went to the University of Dallas and received both my Bachelors in Education and my Texas teaching license. In addition, I obtained my California teaching credential after I graduated. Over the pandemic, I was a learning coach to a family in the Del Mar School District. In 2021, I became an Academic Coach/ 1-1 Support at High Tech High Explorer. In 2019, I got engaged to my high school sweetheart. We are waiting for the day that COVID has become a thing of the past to start our future together. The same year, we adopted our fur child, James P. Sullivan. For you Disney lovers out there, yes, his name is “Sully”. He is a Silver Labrador Retriever. When the weather is good, I can be found hiking a trail or playing women’s fast pitch softball. I have been a catcher for 18 years. When the weather requires me inside, I like to practice cooking or baking, as well as reading a good book. I have mastered the Brownie.
