I grew up in Ojai, before moving to San Luis Obispo, where I graduated for San Luis Obispo High School. I attended California Lutheran University and graduated with History and Social Studies major.
I am currently beginning my 11th year as Director of Student Activities at West Ranch High School and my fourth year teaching United States History. I was Saugus High School’s Director of Student Activities for six years and served as a history teacher and Activities Director at Sierra Vista Junior High School for five years. Prior to coming to the Hart School District I taught history at Pinecrest School in Van Nuys.
I currently serve on the CIF Federated Council as a representative of California Association of Directors of Activities and on the CIF Southern Section Executive Council. I also is an administrator for California Association of Directors of Activities High School/Middle School Camps that are held at UC Santa Barbara every summer.
I am a strong supporter of education, athletics, and student activities. I believe in the correlation between involvement in extra-curricular activities and a students’ academic success.
