I grew up in Southern California and am very excited to be back in the area and joining CWC Mar Vista! I have a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley and a Masters degree in Teaching from National Louis University. For the last eight years, I have taught special education in the northern suburbs of Chicago. My areas of expertise are in middle school curriculum and providing strategies for problem-solving students’ social, emotional, academic, and behavioral needs. In my free time I enjoy running, swimming, biking, yoga, and spending time with my family.
