I was first hired at Cuesta College in the Fall of 2011 as an intern. I worked my way up to an assistant teacher in 2016, a lead teacher in 2019, and now am the Director. I attended Cuesta College as a student, transferred to Cal Poly for my Bachelors, and received my Master's in Child Development from the University of La Verne. I have training in outdoor environments, risky play, reflective supervision, and respectful caregiving.  

My favorite part of working with young children is the adventure every day brings. No other job allows you to spend the day exploring about dragons, Shel Silverstein, pirates, and growing crystals all in one day. My favorite book to read with children is The Book with No Pictures. 

I have a dream of someday hiking rim to rim in the Grand Canyon. While I train for that, you can find me swimming, biking, running, as I get ready for my next triathlon. I may not ever be fast, but I will push through and keep going to the end.
