“My husband is an F-18 pilot and we have been stationed at NAS Lemoore for eight years. We cannot be happier with this amazing community. Our oldest daughter has attended St. Rose since the age of three and is now a second grader. Our youngest daughter is on to her second year of preschool. Being a military spouse has its challenges but with it, we have the opportunity to make lifelong friends along the way.

I have taught biology and anatomy classes at Notre Dame High School for two years prior to joining the St. Rose family. I am eager to contribute my skills and experience to help students grow both academically and spiritually.

When not working, I enjoy spending as much quality family time as I can —going on adventures together and making new memories with our two girls. In my spare time, I love to organize as neat places make me happy. Cooking is another passion of mine, especially cooking from recipes that have been handed down to me from generations."
