A native of California, I have lived in two other countries for a short period of time. One of the best jobs in the world I have is 'Mom.' I competed nationally and internationally in the sport of fast pitch softball - competitive nature is in my blood. Athletics saved my life as did great mentors and a step-dad I would color as love. I'm a member of a few teams: this Collaborative, Mercy Associates, United Way, Catalyst Mentoring and ACSA. I am grateful for all that I've been blessed with, especially family, friends, colleagues and meaningful work with kids.
