I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. I completed my Life Sciences Teaching Credential at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, California. I completed my CLAD certificate through the University of California, Santa Barbara Extension. I hold supplementary authorizations in Chemistry and General Science. This is my 16th year teaching Science at Westlake High School. I just celebrated my 18th wedding anniversary and I have a son and a daughter in middle school this year. I also have a very active German Shepherd Mix rescue puppy. Since having children, I can't quite remember what all of my hobbies were, but I do enjoy watching my kids play sports, discovering new places, going to the beach, reading, getting together with friends, listening to country music, hiking, and, of course, inspiring students!
