Hi there! I graduated from Loyala Marymount University in 1993 with a BA in Psychobiology. After working in the Home Health nursing field for several years, I realized that my calling was in education. In 2000, I received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Chapman University, and began teaching in the traditional classroom setting. Wanting to provide a more personalized learning experience for my students, I joined the GSDA family in 2012. While I love teaching all subjects, I am obsessed with reading, writing, math, and science.  My passions include travelling, spending time with my family, and reading anything I can get my hands on.
