About Me

I am a San Mateo native and returned to the Bay Area in 2001 after attending Boston College and completing my Bachelor of Arts and teaching credential program as well as a Master’s program in the field of mild/moderate special needs.  My return to the west coast was brief, however.  I spent 2002 living in San Blas, a small rural village in Costa Rica.  Following my year teaching English as a foreign language, I taught at San Mateo High School in the resource program. I left San Mateo High to pursue my love of travel and teaching abroad.  I homeschooled two children in the South Pacific before living and becoming a scuba dive master in Thailand.  After returning to the states, I taught English and Social Science to students in the Special Day Class program at Woodside High School.  In the summer of 2008, I became the Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction at Half Moon Bay High School before transitioning into the position of Principal.  After five wonderful years on the coast, I became the Principal of Acalanes High School in Lafayette.


I am pleased and excited to join the Rebel community this year.  I have already experienced the spirit and kindness that defines our amazing public high school in San Lorenzo.  I look forward to spending the year getting to know all members of the SLz community.  Stop in any time to introduce yourself.  To a great 2016-17 academic year...........Go Rebels!!!!
