Biography

Welcome everyone! This is my 9th year of teaching and 9th year with Mesa High School. I am extremely excited for the opportunity to teach each one of you - especially Marketing I & II/DECA as well as working with the Interns in all of the CTE program at Mesa High. These programs include the following: Culinary, Sports Medicine, Biotechnology, Automotive, Welding, Computer Maintenance and Repair, Engineering, Early Childhood, Digital Photography, Marketing, Yearbook, Video Production, and Computer Technologies. 

I am originally from Yuma, Arizona - graduated from Yuma High School - Proud Home of the Criminals. However, I have lived in the valley for the past 18 years. I moved to the Phoenix, AZ area in 2003 to further my education and begin my career. To say the least, teaching is my passion.

It is my pleasure to work with everyone and I look forward to a great 2021/2022 school year. I am excited to have a more "normal" school year!
