Being a teacher has always been a passion of mine ever since elementary school. I am finally fulfilling that dream at OFCC by getting to serve UCSB families and their children. I was born and raised in Santa Maria where I still live today. When I am not working at the center, I enjoy many hobbies like, crocheting, reading, hiking, and playing video games with my brothers to keep me busy. Family and friends are definitely a big part of my life, and they keep me going strong even during hard times. That is why I highly value all the relationships I have the pleasure of making with everyone here at OFCC!
