I grew up in Ridgecrest and received my B.A. in Liberal Studies with a minor in Human Development at California State University Monterey Bay. I married my high school sweetheart and we have two children together. For 6 years I taught levels from pre-school to sixth grade at Heritage Montessori. I feel that my previous training and experience with the Montessori curriculum has helped me observe the natural curiosity and learning processes that children have so that I can better understand and teach each child according to their individual needs. I am enjoying my new journey here at Saint Ann School.

Our military life brought us to Ridgecrest three times in 2007, 2012, and most recently 2016. I married my husband, Jeff, in 2001 and together we have three amazing children. I received my B.A. from Saint Leo University in Tampa, Florida and am currently at Fresno State finishing my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I had the joy of being a stay-at-home mom and raising my children before returning to the classroom 6 years ago. I am originally from Virginia and try to visit as often as I can. I have a love of traveling with my family that has taken us to parts of Africa, the Middle East, and Europe to name a few. I enjoy sharing my travels with my students when it pertains to curriculum.

Being a military family, I recently moved to Ridgecrest with my husband and two children.  I acquired my undergraduate degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas.  I have years of experience teaching various grade levels/subjects, developing curriculum, and differentiating instruction to meet learners needs.
