I have been teaching special education for six years - four have been with GSDA as the Specialized Academic Instructor. I acquired my Master’s Degree in Special Education from National University followed by my Education Specialist Clear Credential and Added Autism Authorization from Cal State Fullerton. Recently I completed coursework to earn my certificate in Mental Health First Response. In addition to teaching at GSDA, I have coached gymnastics at the South Bay YMCA for over 10 years. When I'm not teaching and coaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three kids, lounging around the house and going on family adventures.
