Occupational Therapist


I am the occupational therapist at Laurelhurst and Thornton Creek Elementary . I am excited to join the teams at these schools! I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, and have lived in Los Angeles, California. I attended the University of Southern California (USC) for all of my degrees, and I am a strong USC Trojan football fan! My favorite subject in school was history. I love to eat ice cream!

I am beyond thrilled to continue serving students, families and staff as a school leader at Olympic Hills. 2022-23 marks my 13th year in Seattle Public Schools, six of which have been here at Olympic Hills. This will be my fourth year as Assistant Principal of this school and I can’t imagine being anywhere else. I love the Otter community and our focus on social justice, educational equity and the mindset that we are all learners.
