I was born and raised in the Coachella Valley where I graduated from Indio High School and went on to attend CSUSB in San Bernardino. After completing my teaching credential and BA in Liberal Studies, I began teaching in the rural east valley community of Oasis. There I taught middle school for eight years and began completing my Masters in Educational Administration at CSUSB. I later became the Assistant Principal, then Principal of Oasis Elementary School, followed by a position as Principal at Bobby Duke Middle School. During my tenure I was honored by being named Teacher of the Year and also Principal of the Year. After working 18 years with K-8 in CVUSD I made the transition into High School where I am currently the Assistant Principal here at DHSHS. My duties include the overseeing of the Math Department, Counseling Department, Visual/Performing Arts Department, Master Schedule, Credit Recovery- APEX, Curriculum/Course approval, technology, Advanced Placement, and the Parent Center.
As a career mother, I am blessed to have the ongoing support of my husband and 5 children who understand they also share their mom with 1,700 students during the school year. Through my 20+ years in education I can truly say I am lucky to have a job I love and the satisfaction that comes from knowing I am helping children become great adults.
