I am bilingual and multi-cultural. My personal heritage is German and my children are Native American. In our home, we are rooted in both cultures. Our summers include traveling to Native American ceremonies and other various locations. Professionally I have been a high school/college counselor for over 15 years and I have also coached soccer at the college level. In my youth, I was a very accomplished soccer player and I even participated in the NCAA playoffs. I was born in raised in Southern California (Simi Valley), but as an adult I have lived in various counties in Northern California, Hawaii, and Washington state. My family and I are currently living in Shasta County.

I've always had a passion for helping people and live by the quote "Be the person you needed when you were younger." I am extremely empathetic, and believe that there are no limits to the positive impacts we can have on those around us. I strive to help inspire the next generation of adults who will go out into the world and hopefully do good things.
