Project Director
Ed.D and M.Ed CSU Northridge:
Educational Leadership and Policy Studies
"I have worked in education at all levels K-14 in Texas and California since 1996. I am a licensed cosmetologist, esthetician, and massage therapist and believe career-focused education is for all students, no matter their socioeconomic background, language, culture, or family educational achievements. I love helping students (of all ages) find their passion in life no matter what career or area of interest that may be. Everyone should follow their passion in life for careers. I love being on the Coast, outdoors, camping, hiking, horseback riding, photography, and swimming--all when time permits for fun and relaxation."

BA CSU Chico: Anthropology and French
"I am honored to be working at Maywood and Woodson schools this year! I am a RBHS alum, class of 2010 and graduated CSU Chico in 2015. I am a first generation college graduate and it was because of my experiences as a student that I truly enjoy working directly with students to share my story and empower them to also pursue a post-secondary education. If the UEFA champions league is on or a major futbol cup is playing then I'll be in front of a big screen watching. Otherwise, I enjoy staying active going to Zumba sessions, playing volleyball in my backyard or simply laying back in a hammock with anything written by Ana Castillo glued to my hands."

M.Ed Concordia University: Curriculum and Instruction 
BA Azusa Pacific University: Psychology
"I am a product of Evergreen Elementary and Red Bluff High School with 20 years experience working with students at the high school and middle school levels as coach and mentor. Athletics, specifically track and field, has played a major role in my life, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with others. Spending time with my two sons, family gatherings, sports, fishing, music, and outdoor adventures are my 'go to' for fun and relaxation."

Professional Development Specialist
BA Westmont College
MA Fuller Theological Seminary
It is a privilege to be able to help develop and manage professional development experiences for CTE professionals across Northern California. I look forward to our work here eventually bearing fruit in the form of students with highly sought after skills that will serve them well in today's competitive workplace. Helping students with a passion for technical careers find their place in their professional lives is the passion that drives my day to day work. Accomplishing that goal by working with those who teach these talented and ambitious students is rewarding--and I am constantly amazed by the commitment of the CTE professionals with whom I work.
