Degrees and Certifications:
D1 Science CCPA since 2021 Bachelors in Biochemistry - UC Berkeley Masters in Education - UC Berkeley
I grew up in Santa Rosa, California but quickly found home in the East Bay after transferring to UC Berkeley to complete my undergraduate degree in biochemistry. With an aspiration to learn and teach science, I worked as a researcher in a lab that studied cancer at UCSF before joining the equity-driven teacher education program at UC Berkeley. I believe that we all have the ability to be critical scientists and it is my ambition to help students discover their own scientist identity. While I’m not in the classroom, I love to go on hikes in our regional parks, get lost in a good book, explore cooking magazines, make jewelry, and play with my two fur babies (Hazel and Mazzy).
