I grew up in Wimberley, Texas and enjoyed everything that a small Hill Country town can offer. After high school, I went to West Texas A&M and completed my first two years of college. In 2010, I graduated from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi with a agree in Interdisciplinary Studies. After graduation, I went directly to graduate school at Texas State University. I earned a master’s degree in Special Education with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis and Autism.
In 2012, I moved to San Diego and became an in-home behavior therapist and also worked under a BCBA in the local school system. I have worked under a total of 5 different BCBA’s in the clinical, school, and in-home settings and have worked with individuals with disabilities for 8+ years.
In 2015, I became a mom to my amazing son, Samuel. At that time, I became a stay at home mom and eventually found my way back home to Texas. 2018 was not only my first year at DLE but it was my first-year teaching! Since becoming a LION, I have become the SPED Team Leader, won a Grant for the SPED Department that provided materials for our dyslexia and social skills programs, and won the 2019-2020 Lead with Confidence Award at Leonetti.
I am so blessed to be part of the DLE Pride!
