As the newest member of the Triton family this year, I am honored to be here. Raised in Texas, I started off in a small surf town on the Gulf of Mexico, and over time, gradually moved toward the big city, living in San Antonio and Austin for much of my adult life. In 2012, I moved from Central Texas with my husband and 3 kids and ventured to Maui, HI where I took a position as an Educational Assistant at a local charter school. It was there that I found my calling as a School Counselor. In 2015, I moved to Costa Mesa, CA. In 2018, all in one week, 1 child graduated from Portland State University, I graduated from Capella University with my M.S in School Counseling and another child graduated from NHHS! (What a whirlwind of a week that was) Now, in the fall of 2020, I was given the opportunity to come to CdMMS and work with these wonderful kiddos. Even though it has been a weird year, it has been an amazing time to get to know our Triton family.

It is of utmost importance to me that I work collaboratively with students, parents, teachers, staff and administrators to ensure a student is provided an educational experience that supports a quality education and has equal opportunities for all. I truly believe that providing students with a solid support system as well as a strong foundation in education can impact their future in a positive manner. I will always work to be a “path finder” not a “gatekeeper” with students.
