I am so honored and proud to be able to teach at Valencia High School, a great school! I grew up in Yorba Linda and in my younger days I was actually a Golden Hawk over at El Dorado.  But as you can see I have since come over to the dark side and I am now a Valencia Tiger.  After graduating high school I attended UC Davis up in Northern California.  There, I earned a bachelor's degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology.  I then moved back to Southern California to earn my Teaching Credential from Concordia University.  This year I will also be graduating with my Master's in Environmental Studies from Cal State Fullerton.
I have played soccer since I can remember.  I played varsity for three years in high school and on the club team at UC Davis.  I still currently play soccer through an adult co-ed league.  My best position is outside midfield because I love running! In January of 2020, I ran my first half marathon and reached my goal of doing it in under 2 hours! ;)  I do enjoy an active, outdoors, and sustainable lifestyle.  I've done my fair share of traveling in and outside the USA and I look forward to many more adventures!  I have been to over 12 different countries and over 10 different states.  I love traveling and I look forward to many more adventures!  
I currently teach Biology Honors and AP Environmental Science at VHS.  If you would like to contact me, please email I will get back to you in a timely manner.  Please see Aries for links to google classroom or the right sidebar for more information on specific classes and links to google classroom.
