It is so nice to be back at my Alma Mater! Yes, I am a fellow alumna of Valencia HS just like so many of the other staff members. I graduated from VHS in 1998. After high school I attended Cypress College and then Cal State University, Fullerton. While attending Fullerton, I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology. After graduating in 2002 I entered the Credential Program at CSUF. I completed my student teaching here at Valencia and at Kraemer MS in 2004. I began teaching full-time at Valencia during the 2004-2005 school year. I received my Master's Degree in Physical Education from Azusa Pacific University in January, 2010.
I have spent 15 years coaching in Valencia's softball program and have coached volleyball and basketball also. It is great to be a part of the pride, tradition, and excellence that Valencia's athletic programs have to offer. I am currently not coaching so that I can spend more time with my family.  
I don't usually have a lot of spare time with a little one at home but when I can get away I like to play a pick up game of any sport, work out, go to the movies, go horseback riding, kayaking, biking, hiking, or fishing. 
Let's make this year grrrrrrrrreat! Once a tiger, always a tiger!
