I was born in Rames Air Force Base Puerto Rico during the Cuban missile crisis. I was an Air Force brat from the time I was born until I got married. I graduated form Cal State Long Beach in 1989 and completed my single subject Physical Education credential. I have been teaching at Talbert for the past 24 years and could not think of teaching anywhere else. My hobbies include hiking, tennis, traveling and eating good food with my husband.
