I started at West Campus in September 2006 as the Front Office Clerk, then later became the Attendance Tech. I left West Campus for a few years and returned as the Office Manager/Controller in July 2017.

I enjoy working with West Campus students because they are hard working and motivated to do their best, and that encourages me to work hard for them.

My proudest accomplishments are my three children. I enjoy spending time with my husband and my little dog Jake!

Science Teacher


This is my sixth year teaching at West Campus, but I have been teaching science for the last 16 years. I try to share my love for the sciences with my students in the Biology, Chemistry, and Anatomy & Physiology classes that I teach. 

I enjoy learning and trying new things, but one of my biggest passions is travel, which began when I taught in Japan. Since then, I have been to more than 80 countries and lead a service travel program at the school, where students can volunteer with communities abroad.

Social Science Teacher


I love teaching and have been doing so for over 20 years. I teach AP U.S. History (APUSH), College Prep U.S. History, and Economics. My favorite thought about the value of history comes from Howard Zinn, where he writes, “The past suggests what can be, not what must be. It shows not all of what is necessary, but some of what is possible.” In my spare time I enjoy running, hiking, biking, and cooking up vegetarian and vegan recipes. I was born in Alabama but raised in Las Vegas and San Jose. I live in Sacramento with my beautiful wife and daughter.
