“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

~Abraham Lincoln


I am so excited to join the Washburn team for the 2017-2018 school year!  I grew up in Minnesota, but only recently moved back here after spending 20 years in Southern California.  I received my high school diploma from the International School of Brussels, my Bachelor's Degree from Pomona College, and my Master's Degree from California State University, Los Angeles. I believe that ALL people have the ability to create their own future, and I look forward to helping all of my students achieve their greatest potential.
