I've been a public school teacher for 12 years in Santa Cruz County and am very passionate about teaching and social justice. I work hard, but I also like to travel and play. I spend my weekends riding my bike around town, surfing, running, hiking and sharing meals with friends. I love to travel and frequently visit Mexico and the Pacific Northwest. But no matter where I go, I always look forward to coming back to Santa Cruz. I can't imagine living away from the ocean and feel very fortunate to have a place so close to everything I love. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
