About Me


I love my job. Working with students gives me joy! I have been in education for 32 years - and it's simply because I love what I do! There's nothing better than to work with students all day! This is my second year working at Rocklin Academy Gateway.

Dream big. Work hard. Have fun. When I'm not teaching, you can find me riding my bike, running, baking, or spending time with family. I also love to travel! I have been to Africa 4 times (Mozambique, Ethiopia, and Ilhe de Mocambique), Brazil, and Europe.  I may be going to India soon!
