All About Me

Hello! My educational career includes a B.S in Zoology from Humboldt State University, a Single Subject credential in Biology and Chemistry, and a M.S. in Science Education, both from CSU Long Beach.  Before becoming a teacher, I worked as an emergency veterinary technician for 12 years and did an internship as a zookeeper at Wildlife Safari, a drive-through wild animal park in Southern Oregon. My last non-education career was as a laboratory associate in the biochemical genetics department for Quest Diagnostics. From there I chose to pursue teaching science and have loved every year.  
In my free time, I love to hike, backpack, snowboard, and camp.  In 2019 I competed the Six Pack of Peaks challenge and finished 6 of the highest peaks in Southern California, Mt. Wilson, Mt. Baldy, and Cucamonga Peak to name a few.  In addition to being outdoors, having a vegetable garden, reading travel memoirs, and training my dogs brings me joy.  
My family consists of my husband Mark, an elementary special education teacher, our two teenagers, Karina and Gavin. They both attend high school in Long Beach and are involved in girls lacrosse, surf team, and ice hockey. Watching my children play sports has been such a fun part of being a parent.
