About Me

This year marks my 1st year as a teacher with CAVA, and 5th year teaching overall. Prior to teaching here I worked for Capistrano Unified as an elementary school teacher. I also worked as an English Language Development Support Teacher for Vista Unified overseeing the ELD program at my school site.

I have been married to my husband Matt, a firefighter for OCFA, for 17 years. We have two children. Ryan is 13 and Claire is 11. We live in Ladera Ranch. On the weekends you can find me on the field watching my son play soccer or at the pool watching my daughter swim. When we have a weekend free of sports you will usually find us at the beach! I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running, riding my beach cruiser, and making digital scrapbooks with our family photos!
