I have been working with children for almost 15 years. The reason I got interested in teaching was because I loved the opportunity to profoundly impact the lives of children. I grew up in Goleta, CA and went to the local schools there. I have my Early Childhood degree from SBCC and my Theatre degree from California State University Northridge. In my free time I enjoy hiking, traveling, skiing, and spending time with my family and my dog, Milo.
