About Me

I am excited to return for my fourth year serving the SCHS Bobcat community as the Guidance Technician. I enjoy working with students on all of their post secondary planning needs and goals. Prior to joining Sage Creek I worked at UC San Diego for over 13 years supporting the academic and social development of undergraduate college students at John Muir College (one of the undergraduate colleges at UCSD). I have a particular interest in guiding students through the exploration process surrounding career, life, and college goals. I look forward to helping Sage Creek students find their "best fit" college to continue their academic journey. In addition, I oversee all the scholarship opportunities for our students and look forward to helping students with their scholarship applications. I also have a wealth of information on UC San Diego and the seven Undergraduate Colleges so feel free to contact me with any questions. 

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, helping my two daughters with school and activities, chasing our dog Finley, and playing volleyball.

I work at Sage Creek Mon., Tues., Thurs., and Fri. from 9:30am - 1:30pm and Wed. from 11am-3pm. Students can make appointments to meet with me via my appointment calendar link or by emailing me at

I look forward to working with you during your time at Sage Creek!
