I grew up in Humboldt County, and received my undergraduate degree in History from UCSB. After that, I spent a year at Humboldt State University, where I earned my single subject teaching credential in Social Science. I spent my first two years teaching US History, Economics and Government at Newark Memorial High School from 2008-2010. I began teaching at Novato High school in 2010, where I worked teaching World History, US History and AP Government/ Economics until Spring 2015. In the fall of 2015 I began working at Woodcreek High School. This year I teach World Studies and I also coordinate the Advanced Placement program.
Outside of school I like to hike, backpack, camp, play guitar, watch the Giants, snowboard and spend time with my friends and family. In the summer of 2015 my husband and I spent our summer backpacking the for 200 miles on the John Muir Trail in the Sierras. In the fall of 2015 be bought our first home in Weimar. We then got our dog, Bear, and in the summer of 2016 we got married at our home. In December 2017, I received my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Sacramento State.
We welcomed our first daugher, Autumn, in February of 2018. Our second daughter was born in July of 2019. We are very busy and enjoying parenthood very much!
