Professional Bio

I attended University of Phoenix, Las Vegas , graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Human Services with a Master's in School Counseling .  I have been with the Clark County School District since 2003 - both in the high school and elementary grade levels, and now here at Escobedo MS.  I look forward to working alongside with teachers, parents and their students in meeting the students academic, social emotional, and career needs.

I attended Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry.  I also earned both my Master's degree in Biochemistry and post-baccalaureate K-8  teaching certification from Michigan State University.  I have taught for 13 years- 1 year in Michigan, 1 year in Pahrump, NV, and the last 11 years here at Escobedo MS.  I have also worked as a lab tech, both in academic and hospital settings.
