Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, I grew up in San Diego and Los Angeles, attending UCLA, Pepperdine, and National University. I pursued a career in corporate training was the Director of Training and Development for IHOP Corp. and other large corporations before relocating to Sonoma County for a quality-of-life change to enjoy the Northern California lifestyle.
I enjoy teaching and working with the great diversity of students here at SRJC where I teach a variety of Business and technology courses. My teaching schedule has included a very diverse selection of courses such as Bookkeeping, Business Math, QuickBooks, and Microsoft Office courses, plus a wide variety of self-paced courses. If you are in a BOT Certificate program, we'll likely see one another!
When not on campus, I am busy in our vineyards raising Chardonnay, Syrah, Pinot, and Zinfandel grapes along with sheep, chickens, horses, and llamas. I look forward to seeing you in class!
