I was born and raised in sunny Southern California and am the middle child of three. As an avid learner, I earned my Doctorate degree in Education and spent several years in Social Work helping foster youth and homeless veterans. Currently I teach Informatics Education to hospital staff at Stanford Medicine. I enjoy traveling with my two children and exploring new activities. Raised a Chicago sports fan, I frequent baseball and hockey games when my teams are in town. Plus I am always up for a rugby match! I call Bay Area home with my kids, boyfriend and energetic Husky, Echo.
