This is my 5th year working as a CTE Health Science Pathway teacher. During my time as an educator, I have been an active advisor for the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) organization. I have had the pleasure of coaching and accompanying students to the State and International levels of healthcare competitions. I graduated from California State University, Fresno with my Pre-Clinical Laboratory Science Degree. Prior to my teaching career, I worked at Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno where I held many positions; Security Officer, Microbiology Laboratory Assistant, and Microbiology Laboratory Technician. I am a lifelong learner and a total Science fanatic. I have continued to take college courses in the Healthcare Pathway as well as American Sign Language. Outside of work, I love spending time with my four children on our little farm with all of our animals; I have three sons and a daughter.
