I was born in Mesa, Arizona and grew up in Tempe & Chandler. I attended ASU and received my Bachelor's of Arts in Education with an emphasis in Physical Education. I received my Master's in Bilingual and Multicultural Education from NAU a couple years later.
I began teaching in Mesa in 2001. I taught at Wilson Elementary for 7 years and during that time I was a traveling teacher so I also taught at Highland, Barbara Bush, Jefferson & Porter Elementaries. I then became the school-based (full-time) PE teacher at Brinton Elementary from 2008-2017. I greatly enjoyed my 9 years at Brinton and had the opportunity to start up an after-school running club and the annual RUN3rd 5k. I'm excited to be bringing those programs to Zaharis this year and look forward to becoming a Soaring Eagle!
In my free time I love being active. My husband and I participate in running, cycling and triathlon events throughout the year and try to sneak in a hike or two when we can ... most weekends are spent outdoors doing something. We also enjoy traveling, learning about other cultures and explore new places.
Parents are always welcome to observe or participate in a PE lesson. For information on what to expect out of our PE program, click here.
