About Me I have been a teacher in special education for 16 years. My husband and I moved to Roseville in 2016. We couldn’t be happier to be a part of this amazing community. I decided that I wanted to be a teacher when I was in kindergarten. Throughout my school years, my teachers were always a very important part of my life. After college, I worked for Verdugo Hills Autism Project in Southern California as an ABA (applied behavioral analysis) assistant. During this time, I worked with children on the Autism Spectrum. I developed a passion for advocating for students with Autism and decided to blend this passion with my desire to teach. I have learned so much from teaching students with special needs. It is a constant and humbling learning process that blesses me each day. When I am not teaching, I enjoying reading, practicing yoga, traveling and spending time with animals. We have 2 dachshunds and 1 golden retriever. I also volunteer at Blackberry Creek Animal Sanctuary each week.
