Hi All! I was born and raised in San Diego where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies, with minors in Nonprofit Management & Social Enterprise and Theatre Arts & Performance Studies from the University of San Diego. After graduating, I worked for the Walt Disney Company in various roles including customer service, communications, and public relations. During the pandemic, I left Los Angeles and returned back home to sunny San Diego, where I worked for Petco as a Communications Specialist. I returned to the classroom in 2021 as an educator for both the Chula Vista Elementary School District and Urban Discovery Academy. I consider myself quite the bookworm, so please let me know what you’re currently reading! In my free time, you will find my husband and I enjoying the sunshine at the Zoo, visiting museums, hammock-ing at the park, or watching the most recent blockbuster at the movies! I am thrilled to join HTeCV’s incredible 4th grade team!
