I love being an educator. During my 17 years in education I have served in many capacities, such as general education teacher, instructional coach, state instructional/behavior coach, and consultant. My favorite part of being an educator is working with other educators to improve learning outcomes for students. I received my Bachelors of Science Degree from Weber State University with a major in Elementary Education and a Minor in Early Childhood Education in 1996. I received my Masters Degree at the University of Utah in 2013 through the Educational Leadership and Policy program. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family to new places to experience the world around me. My husband and I live in Marin County, California with our three kids and dog.
There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing that “aha” moment in a student’s face. My approach has always been to employ every learning strategy and modality to get there. As an Instructional Coach I am honored to support teachers in their classrooms to achieve that moment for their students.
My educational path includes teaching grades 3-10 in various settings and systems. It was an honor to serve as an administrator in the elementary and middle school settings. I obtained my bachelor’s in Industrial Psychology from Loma Linda University and a Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of LaVerne. My husband Matt and I live in the Los Angeles area with our fur babies, Sunny and Hobbes. In our spare time we love camping, gardening, DIY projects and spending time with family.
