I'm a born New Yorker. My family moved to California in 1977. I graduated from Newbury Park Adventist Academy and received my Bachelor of Arts degree and my teaching credential at California Lutheran University. I love spending time with my family and enjoy gardening and crocheting. I am a firm believer in Adventist education. I believe in preparing children for service within the church.
