I am a veteran educator with over 10 years of experience working with teens and young adults. I have worn many hats in the field of education. I've been a high school teacher, the social skills and academic manager at a progressive private school, the group director of a teen travel summer camp, and an owner of a small private tutoring business. My philosophy for my clients is one of compassion, respect and requisite tough love, with the ultimate goal of helping the teens and young adults I work with on their journey of becoming independent, confident adults.
I currently reside in San Diego, California, where in my free time you can find me surfing, playing soccer and enjoying the city. I hold dual degrees in Secondary Education and History from the University of Maryland, College Park, and am a graduate of their Honors Program.
