Hi all! I was born and raised in Southbay San Diego and am very excited to be back with High Tech High Chula Vista after student teaching here as part of the HTH Teacher Apprentice Program. Prior to working at the High School level, I was an Academic Coach at High Tech Middle Chula Vista and believe in creating a classroom which values neuro-diversity and equity. I received my B.A. from San Diego State University working full-time off campus at a local credit union and volunteering for a local grassroots organization. After more than half a decade working in the insurance & financial industry I’m currently completing my Master’s of Education in Teaching and Learning through the HTH Graduate School of Education. When I’m not on campus in my free time I enjoy hiking, running, reading, politics, playing basketball, traveling and enjoying time with friends and family.
