Born and raised in Scott Valley, my love for the water began as a Sea Serpent at the age of 4. After swimming and playing water polo
in Marin for over 14 years, helping coach along the way, I attended UC Davis, where I played Division I water polo for 4 years
and earned my Teaching Credential and Masters in Education. My love of teaching and coaching has brought me back to the bay area,
and I feel honored to be a part of the Scott Valley community once again. I hope to be able to create the same positive, competitive,
exciting atmosphere around swimming that I was a part of when I began over twenty years ago, while instilling the passion and drive
for lifelong learning both in and out of the water.
