I was born and raised in the great state of Texas. I attended the University of Texas at Austin to earn my bachelor and master degrees in the science of social work. In between these degrees, I was an AmeriCorps National Volunteer. I believe I learned more in my year in AmeriCorps than all my schooling together (just like HTH's principle of real-world connection!) During my decade as a social worker, I got to work with some great families and collaborate with many excellent community agencies. In 2005, I decided to change my focus to education and discovered High Tech High. I'm thrilled to be working at an incredible school with awesome teachers and fantastic students. I truly love to help others. When I'm tired of working with humans, I plan to follow in the footsteps of Cesar Millan and Roger Fouts.
