I was born in Oakland, CA, but after the age of 8 I grew up in a variety of places. I lived in Honduras for one year, in Nicaragua for 7 years, and in Kazakhstan for my last year of high school. I loved living where I did, and I now try to bring that appreciation of culture and geography into the classroom. I returned to the United States for college where I first attended Chabot Community College in Hayward. I then transferred to San Francisco State University where I received a bachelor’s in History and a minor in Latin American Studies. I also earned my teacher’s credential there. I enjoy working at Unity High and seeing students gain skills that will help them throughout life.
Outside of the classroom I enjoy baking, biking and spending time with family and friends.
