"The choices you make today shape your world tomorrow."



In 1996, I completed my undergraduate degree in elementary education at Arizona State University. After eight years as a classroom teacher, I earned a master's degree in secondary education through Northern Arizona University. Three years later, I completed a second master's degree in school guidance counseling at Ottawa University. Most recently, I've added the structured English immersion endorsement to my teaching certificate. 


The 2019-2020 school year represents my 24th year as an educator with Mesa Public Schools.  Before serving at East Valley Academy and Crossroads, I was a counselor at Poston and Shepherd Junior Highs.  My first 11 years with Mesa Public Schools were spent as a fifth-grade teacher at Emerson Elementary.
