About Me

Born and raised until the age of ten in Riverside, California, I moved to Arizona with my family in the late 90's. I am the daughter of a Biochemistry professor and a Physicist. How did two science nerds have an English teacher for a daughter? Who knows.

Here in the valley, I attended high school at Skyline, the rival of DRHS. I went to college at Arizona State University and graduated with highest honors in 2013, earning a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education, specializing in English. 

I am a mother of two, a son in elementary school and a daughter who is in the toddler stages. I also have a fur baby who joined our family in 2016 named Sirius, after Sirius Black of Harry Potter

I am a bookworm and I read as many novels as possible each year. I love when students come to me with book suggestions. My all-time favorite book series is Harry Potter. When I'm not teaching or reading, I enjoy hiking, running, horseback riding, dancing, playing video games with my son, and watching T.V. series.
