Welcome to Seventh Grade!
I grew up in Camarillo and attended St. Mary Magdalene Church and Adolfo Camarillo High School. After graduating high school, I attended Ventura College and then transferred to San Jose State University and graduated in 1987 with a degree in Advertising and Marketing. I married my husband Sean in 1986 in the chapel at St. Mary Magdalen's. After working in that field for a few years, we had our first son, and I decided to stay home and raise him. My family moved to Carpinteria, to be close to our family. We had a second son and shortly after, we moved to Ventura, around 1992. We have been residents of Ventura ever since.
My sons attended Portola Elementary, Anacapa Middle School and Foothill High School. While the boys were in school, I was busy volunteering in classrooms, working on the PTA and selling Pampered Chef. Once the boys were in middle school, I started working for the district, first as a para-educator, then as a substitute teacher. I spent several years working at Loma Vista Elementary school, and that is where I did my student teaching.
My oldest son, Robert, graduated from Stanford with a double-major in Biology and Computer Science. He obtained his masters in BioInformatics from UCSF. He currently lives in San Francisco and works for The Parker Institute for Cancer Immunology.
My younger son, Erik, received a Fine Arts Degree with an emphasis in Professional Photography from Brooks Institute. He currently lives in Ventura and works in Simi Valley for Stillwaters Advertising Agency. He is going to be married in November 2018.
I also has two dogs, Roxy and Cappy, that I love!
