Professional Profile: 

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and I drive back often to visit all of my family and friends there. I went to UCLA for college, where I majored in English, minored in Spanish, and worked in a restaurant. I decided to return to UCLA for graduate school, where I received a master's degree in Education. I began my teaching career at Roosevelt High School (Los Angeles) and later taught at Sweetwater High School in San Diego. I taught every level of English over those ten years.

I escaped the big city and moved to the Roaring Fork Valley in 2015. Since I've lived here, I've been a guest teacher, a teacher at BMS, and an English tutor for CMC students. I look forward to continuing to work with students in the Basalt community in my new position at BHS. 

Communication Preferences: 

My favorite way to communicate is in person, if possible. If not, email is second best. I am not always able to check my email regularly outside of the school day (see below), but I do my best. 

Fun Facts: 

I live in a small log cabin with no running water or electricity and limited cell reception. This is my third year there, and I am loving it! Winters can be a challenge, though. 

I love the outdoors, and I love long-distance backpacking. So far, I have hiked across two countries. 

I used to love to read so much that I would hide in the closet with a flashlight to read after my parents thought they had put me to bed. I still love to read, but now I also love to sleep.
