Having come from a family of special educators, it was a natural choice for me to pursue a career within special education.  I have worked in the field for close to twenty years. I began as a student aide and then moved onto a non-profit organization and eventually onto working within school districts. I have been with Palo Alto since 2003 and have enjoyed working for a district that supports the integration of technology into the classroom.  

I work three days a week and in my "spare time" I enjoy being a mom to two amazing kids who keep me busy with sports, drama classes and playdates.  In my downtime, you will catch me on the couch with a good book trying to enjoy a few minutes of quiet!

I have enjoyed working with Assistive Technology over the past 6 years.  It is such an exciting field, with life-changing advances being made every day.  Working with assistive technology to create access for students has provided me with countless moments of inspiration.  

With my free time, I love to ride my bike, surf, golf, or listen to music.  I love camping, hiking, bird watching, getting outside and taking breaks from the digital world.

Hello Everyone! I have been with P.A.U.S.D special education department for six years. During that time I have learned a lot and have grown as a person. I have worked with amazing students and staff and enjoyed every second of it.

Since I was eight, I have been fascinated by technology. Now I'm with the Assistive Technology team and have enjoyed working with different technologies that support student learning. I love watching how educators are successfully implementing technology into their lesson plans. I think it is safe to say that the “future” has arrived

For my “off work” hours, I try to stay active but that’s not always the case.  Most days I go to the gym.  I try to catch up with friends on weekends.  Also, I love nature so hiking is a big part of my life.
