Education

My educational journey began with the completion of a B.A. in English from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. Next, in 1999, I completed a California Clear Teaching from Santa Clara University, where I received a Single-Subject Credential to teach English. In 2003, I obtained a Masters of Social Work (MSW) from Sacramento State University, where I completed the Title IV-E program, which focuses curriculum on child welfare. Finally, in 2007, I graduated with a Juris Doctor from the McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento. While a law student, I interned at the Sacramento District Attorney’s Office.


Professional

After completing my B.A., I moved to California and spent a year with AmeriCorps, developing literacy programs at elementary schools in San Jose. Upon receiving my California Clear Teaching Credential, I taught at high schools in Sunnyvale and Rio Linda. While teaching, I was accepted in the MSW program and started working as a social worker in the Sacramento area. My experiences as a social worker include CPS investigations, residential care social work for children and teenagers, case management for severely and chronically mentally ill persons in Solano County, and private practice. From 2011-2014, I was adjunct professor at Alliant International University. At Alliant, I taught Law and Ethics, Advanced Couples Therapy, Family Assessments and Sex Therapy. Finally, my degree in law allowed me to practice several years as a civil litigator. Ultimately, however, I returned to social work, as this is where by heart truly is. Currently, in addition to private practice, I currently teach Research and Social Work Statistics at Sacramento State University.

Personal

I grew up in Washington state and still love many of the area sports teams (Go Seahawk!). I enjoy gardening, hiking, traveling and playing with my two children. In 2006, I completed the Rock n’ Roll Marathon in San Diego. While I no longer run as often, I try to exercise often with weights and jump rope. In addition, I frequently listen to punk rock music (Fugazi is one of my favorites) and enjoy reading (whenever I can). Curiously, I have grown fond of mathematics (and teaching statistics) as I have aged. I try to integrate my legal education and training in teaching law and ethics.
