My Life So Far

I am a late in life teacher and I wonder what took me so long. It is my pleasure and honor to work with your children. I am married and I have two daughters. I worked in finance for twenty years before switching to this challenging sector. I live in San Anselmo, but I am a lifelong Oaklander! I am a UC Davis grad. I love coaching sports and running on trails. Prestige televised dramas in this current golden age are certainly my weakness.
