Born and raised in the Arizona desert, I am a proud Arizona State alum (go Devils!). After graduating with honors and two Bachelors Degrees, I began my teaching career and later earned my Masters Degree in Rhetoric and Teaching Writing.
Now I live in Silicon Valley where I am learning about the impactful world of philanthropy through my work at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. I am constantly looking for opportunities to network and collaborate with others seeking to make the world a better place for the people and places closest to my heart.
When I’m not at my day job, you’ll find me volunteering with local community organizations. In my free time, I like to try new restaurants and explore beautiful Bay Area hiking trails with my family and golden retriever.
