She graduated from Bishop O’Dowd High School and received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Southern California in Cinema-Television Production. She returned to the Bay Area and became the owner of a licensed Child Care Facility. She currently attends Holy Names University as a Multiple Subjects Credential and Masters of Education candidate. She is no stranger to the field of Education. Her grandmother taught Kindergarten in Oakland for over twenty years, so she is following in her grandmother’s footsteps.
