I started teaching in the Fountain Valley School District in 2004 and I am honored and privileged to be part of the Courreges team. I grew up in Huntington Beach and graduated from Arizona State University with a BA in Business Management. After graduating and moving back to Southern California, I tried my hand successfully in the business field and came to realize that business was not where I was meant to be, teaching was. So I headed to Azusa Pacific University where I completed my Teaching Credential and Masters Degree. After college, I married my college sweetheart and we have three teenage children. I absolutely love spending time with my family at the beach and in the desert riding dirt bikes. Hawaii is one of our favorite places to vacation and we try to visit every couple of years.
