Hello! I have been an occupational therapist for 13 years and have worked in a variety of health-care and education-based settings over the years. The 2021-2022 school year is my 3rd year with Adams 12. I am originally from Southern California and received my bachelor's degree in Human Development from University of California, San Diego (UCSD). I received my master's and doctorate degrees in Occupational Therapy from University of Southern California (USC). I have lived in Colorado for almost 6 years now. I enjoy hiking, camping, biking, skiing, and stand up paddleboarding with my husband, as well as our 3 cute French Bulldogs: Nacho, Chuy, and Ralphie.
I enjoy working with students of all ages and I love to bring play into everyday life. Some of my favorite activities to work on with my students include: obstacle courses, craft activities, board games, card games, typing activities, building with legos/ STEM activities, cooking, and baking.
