Born and raised in the OC, but SB has been home for over a decade and I feel my roots sinking deeper into this community every day. I can't believe I get to live here. Married to Ryan--the love of my life and the funniest guy in the room--since 2004. Mom of two confident and brave girls who fill my soul, soften my hard edges, and bring God-sized joy to our little Jesus-lovin' family.


BA Political Science from UCLA

MA & PhD Educational Leadership & Organizations from UCSB
