Hello and WELCOME TO THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR!!!!  This is my second year as the 8th grade special education service coordinator and I am so excited to be a part of this amazing team! 

I was raised in Southern California and obtained my undergraduate degree from California State University, Fullerton (go Titans!), a graduate degree from the University of Southern California (go Trojans!) and earned my Masters in Special Education at the University of Arizona (go Wildcats!).    I raised my older two children in California before relocating to Arizona with my younger two in 2017.  We love and Anthem and all the amenities our community has to offer!  My younger two attend school here at Canyon Springs and are in second and fifth grade.  We have two pups at home, a beautiful golden retriever and a cuddly chihuahua, that keep us may even see us out walking with them...when the outside temperatures drop a little!

I love to do all sorts of things, but my absolute favorite thing is family trips to Berchtesgaden, Germany!  I also love going to Disneyland, the movies, hiking, camping, READING, cooking, and crafting!!  

I look forward to meeting each of you, and supporting you in any way I can.  The best way to get in touch with me this year is going to be email:

This is going to be an exciting year….WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER!!
