I grew up in Ukiah, CA and have one brother and one sister. We are a soccer family who loves coaching and playing! I coached high school and club for many years; I also had the privilege to play in a recent alumni game. I am a Mom of three boys and have always had a love for teaching children from the soccer field to the classroom. I started working with children through the Mendocino County Office of Education in 1998. My children attended Montessori preschools and I have always had a place in my heart for Montessori teaching. I was lucky enough to join the Madrone team 2 years ago.
