Natomas has been my community for the last ten years in that from the day I was hired for my first official teaching job, it was in Natomas. I had the absolute privilege of being a Natomas High School Nighthawk as a teacher. I taught business, computer, web and work experience courses during my time there. I also was the girls head varsity basketball coach, an assistant varsity volleyball coach, a class advisor and a multitude of other things. I loved my time at NHS and found such satisfaction out of building rapport with students and helping them believe in what they could be.
After teaching for three years at NHS, I had the privilege of becoming an assistant principal there. While my role changed and the students saw me in a different light, I still had a strong passion for believing in students and who they could be, even looking past mistakes they may have made.
In my fifth year as an AP at NHS, I was given the opportunity to plan the opening of a new school in the district as its first principal. At the time, little did I know that LGA would be my new home. I still have a deep love for my roots at NHS, but LGA has become where I belong. I believe in what we are doing here and how we are impacting students, academically and otherwise.
On a personal note, I am the wife to an amazing husband (Daniel), and the mother to an adorable little boy (Dathan), who motivate me everyday. Being a parent, I now understand other parents. While I was passionate for taking care of students and helping families before I had a child, I live in a new world having one of my own! I get it.

I am truly passionate about ensuring that our school prepares students for college and career. I help make sure that the education students receive at our school meets each child's needs and is challenging.
I grew up playing soccer, swimming, and playing water polo. Being a student athlete was a very valuable experience for me, and I am so happy that we will have athletics at our site next year.
