Hello Spreckels Community!

I am so excited to begin the 2023-24 school year as the new principal at Spreckels Elementary.  I had the pleasure of working with this amazing community last year as the Associate Principal and am thrilled to continue the journey learning alongside teachers, staff and students.  

My more than 25 years of experience as an educator, both inside and outside of the classroom has taught me the importance of being authentic, patient and empathetic.  As a classroom teacher, I have had the opportunity to teach in many diverse and unique environments. As an administrator I have worked as an Associate Principal, Director of Instructional Leadership and Development and an elementary school Dean. I have found the greatest joy working directly with our wonderful students, families and brilliant teachers. I strive to empower students and adults, hear all voices and see the gifts that all students bring. 

I grew up in Oxnard, California. I hold a Bachelors of Arts degree from UCSB (Go Gauchos!) in Political Science and African American Studies, a Masters in Teaching and Curriculum and a Masters in Educational Leadership. 

I enjoy spending time with my husband, three sons and pups. Additionally, I love reading, traveling, exercising, going to the beach, binge watching K-dramas, and practicing Korean and Spanish. 

I look forward to our partnership.

I am because we are.
