I was born in Tracy, California, just outside of San Francisco.  I have spent my life in the service of trauma victims, most recently in Los Angeles working for a sex trafficking prevention program.  I am currently working towards my Bachelor’s degree in social work with the aspiration of being a licensed therapist.  I am a big believer that with God all things are possible and I draw on His strength early and often.  I am the most proud of my two beautiful children and my husband.  I have many favorite things, but the favorites of my favorites are hanging out with my family and spending time in the outdoors.  If I happen to be in my kayak in the water, then even better.  I look forward to creating relationships with the amazing young women at Elk Mountain.
