I have always been intrigued by science and nature. I suppose this is due to being raised by parents who love the outdoors. Plus, I’m one of six children, and spending family time camping is much cheaper than airfare and hotels! Even in elementary school, I remember science being my favorite subject, and I am told by my mom that I would often be found tutoring and teaching my younger sister everything I learned. I even remember wanting to play “school” even in the summertime! Therefore, it makes sense that I would be in the education field even today, since it is something I truly enjoy.

 After high school, I went to Pasadena City College as a biology major. While taking classes to fulfill my general education requirements, it was recommended that I take geology (the longer version of this story is somewhat interesting, so ask me about it sometime!). I took the class and found it very interesting, but still remained a biology major. I then transferred to California State University, Los Angeles. I took a natural disasters geology class to fulfill another requirement, and was hooked! Instead of abandoning biology completely, I decided to also minor in biology while earning a BS degree with a dual major in Geology and Natural Science. I continued at CSULA, earning a MS degree in geology. My thesis involved examining and characterizing the regional and contact metamorphism in the Cactus Flat area of the San Bernardino Mountains through field relationships and petrography.

I taught at the high school level for 12 years, while concurrently teaching as an adjunct professor at various community colleges and universities for five years. I accepted a full time professor position at Chaffey College in 2015 after being part time at Chaffey for two years. I have taught a variety of geology and earth science classes, but typically teach Physical Geology and Earth Science (both lecture and lab classes). I enjoy taking students into the field to go hiking on volcanoes, faults, and really cool rocks in Southern California!

When I’m not formally teaching, I am found spending time with my family. My husband, our four kids and I enjoy having any type of fun together! When we go on a trip out of town, I’m always nervous that California will have its big earthquake, “The Big One,” without me! I absolutely love living in Southern California, and living in earthquake country just keeps it exciting!
