I was born in Pasadena, CA. My childhood was spent between Lodi, California, and Southern Africa.
I earned my B.A. in English Literature with a Minor in Communications from Wheaton College, Illinois, and went on to earn my teaching credential from CSUS (Sac State!).
My passion is to help young people see the worth and potential in themselves, and to help them become the very best that they can be, finding their joy and sharing their talents and gifts with others.
