About Me

I grew up in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, moving to California upon my father's retirement from the Army. I graduated from UCLA with Bachelor's degrees in English and Economics, then spent several years managing tutoring centers for Kaplan across Los Angeles, designing academic programs for K-12 students. I left my position there to work for an independent bookstore for two years, then returned to UCLA to earn my teaching credential and Masters in Education. For 10 years at Alliance, I taught Math, English, and Medical Science, then transitioned to administration for the last two years. I am excited to join Virgil Roberts this year to further our school's mission of preparing students for the future.
