I was born and raised in Encinitas, CA. I grew up in the St. James parish and even made my First Communion here.
I moved to Steubenville, OH in 2003 where I attended Franciscan University of Steubenville. I graduated with my BS in Elementary Education and my MS in Educational Administration.
I taught Kindergarten for 4 years in Ohio until I made the decision to take the 2nd grade teaching position at St. James Academy. This will be my 7th year as the 2nd grade teacher here at St. James and I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing community. Faith, Family and Education are the 3 most important things in my life and I feel as though this campus embodies all of that and more.
I enjoy reading, swimming, hiking, cooking, crafting, shopping and drinking coffee. I love my job and look forward to many more years in this amazing field.
