I was born and raised in Sonoma County. I attended Healdsburg High School and the SRJC, finishing up at Sonoma State University. I really did not want to leave the area with my friends, family, and recreational activities.

I have loved this area always and was very active in the sport horse community while going to college. I went to shows and competed (at a low level but had so much fun) and learned so much about the care and training of these large animals. 

After college I was able to travel and see more of the world but never could find a place that felt like home....mostly because my family wasn't there...and really every other place was awesome but I could not see myself leaving Sonoma County. Though I was tempted by Greece...the people in Greece are spectacular!

When the economic crash of 2008 hit I decided to go back to school for my Masters in Counseling Psychology and applied to Sonoma State, but was not accepted into their program. I was working at a school at the time and a colleague recommended the University of San Francisco; I applied and was accepted. That was such good luck!

I am now working my dream job and still in Sonoma is good....I was able to visit Italy last year and while tempted by Rome I cannot see myself living anywhere else!
