I moved to California in 2002 from Memphis, TN, where I lived for 15 years. I was born and raised in the Garden State of New Jersey. I am a member of the original staff that was hired when Lake Mathews opened its doors in 2003 and this is my 13thyear teaching kindergarten. My husband, John, and I live here in Victoria Grove with our little Yorkie, Molly. In addition to my love of teaching, I like to cook, garden, read, and practice yoga.
