I was born in Salt Lake City, UT and raised in South San Francisco, CA. I had a career as an opera singer before becoming a private voice teacher in 1995. In 2004, I began teaching music in the classroom and returned to school at Western Governors University in September of 2014 to major in Interdisciplinary Studies. I graduated with a credential in July 2017 and am thrilled to be teaching 5th grade at Santee. I am excited to be with my scholars and want them to know that the world is full of wonderful possibilities and opportunities for growth, learning, and careers.
