I grew up in Brea, California playing sports, enjoying the beach, and enjoying family adventures. I have a huge family six brothers and one sister, needless to say there was never a dull moment. After graduating from Concordia University in Irvine with a BA in History/Political Science, I continued my education by earning my teaching credential through Concordia. I then had the opportunity to work on two U.S. military bases in Germany, helping with their children programs. I enjoy the beach, traveling, and spending time with my family. My husband and I have enjoyed living in Visalia and being part of the Pioneer community. I am looking forward to a successful school year full of learning opportunities and Pioneer Pride!
