I am a graduate of both the University of California, Santa Barbara and the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Law. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and my Juris Doctor. I practiced law in a variety of areas including civil litigation, criminal defense as a public defender, and appeals. Presently, I am an elementary school substitute teacher in San Diego's north county coastal areas. I have a 21 year-old son who is now attending college in Denver, Colorado. My son has some learning disabilities and I was very involved in all aspects of his education through high school. I have a lifelong passion for learning and am excited about imparting this love to students. I believe every individual can be successful in educational pursuits given the appropriate direction and tools. Very often students struggle because the material is being presented in a way that is not appropriate to their individual learning style. Finding and utilizing that learning style is a specialty of mine.When I'm not working, I enjoy hiking, yoga, reading, and crocheting.
