I am a born-and-raised San Diegan who returned to the land of sunshine and burritos in 2020 after nearly a decade away. After graduating from High Tech High International, I went to Rhodes College, where I majored in political science with a focus on political philosophy and Latin American studies. From there, I moved to Washington, D.C. to pursue a career on Capitol Hill, which led me to work in election campaign consulting and then at The Pew Charitable Trusts. In 2022, I followed my lifelong dream of becoming an educator and joined the San Diego Teacher Residency through High Tech High’s Graduate School of Education, and student taught 9th Grade Humanities at High Tech High Mesa.
After the school day, I like to go to a yoga class, take a walk, and learn to surf. I grew up skiing, and always make time during winter break to get some runs in. On most weekends, you can find me and my husband, who works in philanthropy at the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance, hosting friends for a dinner party or taking our pup, Lilo, on an adventure.
