My teaching philosophy is to help each student succeed and ensure they are learning the skills they need to reach their goal. To do this, I treat each student as a unique person and promote diversity. I value all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the campus and within the community.
I graduated from Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nevada with an Associate of Science Transfer degree. My Bachelor's of Science in Business Management is from the University of Reno, Nevada. My Master's in Science in Management and Leadership is from Western Governors University. Prior to joining SPSCC, I was a program manager at a community college, where I coordinated educational programs and supported students. My background is varied with job experiences in accounts payable, as a training manager, contract trainer, and training coordinator. I have worked in human resources, higher education, retail, food service, parks and recreation, and as a wild animal keeper at an animal sanctuary. All the positions I have held helped me grow perspective and a wide variety of skills.
