I'm a previous high school English teacher, and I've taught part-time at Foothill College since 2016. I'm also a real estate agent, small business owner, and the president of a nonprofit that supports high school students in Redwood City. I was born and raised in San Carlos, but currently live in San Jose. Outside of classes and listing appointments, you can find me at the gym--I'm adamant about physical and mental health.

I feel like I grew up at West Valley, as my mom was the Health Services Director for about 14 years--I attended West Valley's College 4 Kids summer program when I was in middle school, attended a few classes here as a college student, and I've come full circle having taught both College 4 Kids classes AND English courses.
