Bio

Early Life: I was born in Santa Rosa, CA. Skip a few years and I graduated from Healdsburg High School. My brother and I were first generation college students and both ended up in San Diego for college (not a bad place to study). 

Previous Work Life: After graduating with my PhD, I worked as a researcher for both the NCAA and Rockman et al. Thereafter, I was a faculty member at the University of Indianapolis for 3 years and Napa Valley College for one year. 

Current-ish Life: I got married in 2003 and have three kiddos as a result. Jacob (11), Addison (8), and Preston (5). If I am not working on classes or feeding a kiddo or watching a kiddo play soccer/baseball, I am playing tennis or reading. I drink too much coffee. There. I said it. I love to teach...so that's what I do!
