Working with kids and having an impact in their lives has always been a passion of mine. I started my professional career working in pediatrics for 7 years as a medical assistant and enjoyed working with and caring for kids. I then went back to school to be a Preschool Teacher while my son was growing up. After 5 years in preschool, I intended to continue my career in nursing, but God opened a door for me instead in Christian Education. As the Family Relations Director, I loved that I could incorporate my faith and work with kids through school activities and teaching the Leadership class. I am excited to bring my passion and experience to SJCS and continue to further my education in Child Psychology to support my work with kids for God’s glory.
I’ve lived in San Jose all my life. I met my husband at church and we got married in 2017. We are a blended family with three kids and a one-eyed pug named Lincoln. We are very active at our church and we help lead the Mexico missions and the Connect ministry there. Through these ministries, our family gets to do what we believe is the most important: Love God and Love People. I am a big Warriors fan and I love basketball. I also love to cook, dance, and go to the beach.
Christian Philosophy of Education
I believe that the greatest foundation a child can have is a Christian foundation, and I love being part of helping kids build that foundation. It is important to me to be able to pray for students and speak to their spirit within a community that cares about every child’s well-being. I believe it is important to teach students with Christ at the center, because without that piece students miss out on something that can make them whole. A Christ-centered education is a complete one and I am blessed to be a part of a school that prioritizes this in every way.
