I grew up in the small copper mining town of Kearny, Arizona where I graduated from Ray High School. I then went on to receive an Associate of Science degree from Central Az College, a Bachelor's of Arts degree from the University of Arizona, and a Master's of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix.
In 2003 I started my career in Tucson, Arizona in the Sunnyside School District as a reading interventionist and a first grade teacher. I also taught first grade for the Leman Academy during their opening year. Currently, I am an elementary reading interventionist for Coronado K-8.
During my down time I like to travel with my family, visiting Disneyland, zoos, aquariums, the beach, and going to Diamondback games. I have two daughters, one son-in-law, two grandsons, and two granddaughters. I also enjoy spending time with my little poodle mix Freeway, whom got his name from where I rescued him.
