Hello! My name is Mariela Ventura. I was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, but have lived in California all my life. I have moved back and forth between the Bay Area and Sacramento. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from CSU East Bay, and my teaching credentials from Sacramento State. I live with my husband and my very cute puppy. Some things I really, really love include hiking, relaxing at beaches, playing with my puppy, and going to Disneyland!
