Welcome to O'Farrell!! I am the Principal for our Middle School Academy. My educational background includes a BS in Journalism from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from National University. I have teaching credentials for both multiple subject and K-8 English Language Arts, as well as an administrative credential. In addition to working with our middle teachers and students, I also handle all of our state and federal testing and I am also and AVID District Director for AVID Center. I have been lucky enough to work at O'Farrell since the fall of 2002. I taught our AVID classes until June of 2010. At that point, I moved out of the classroom and into the office for my current position.

I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a BS Journalism, emphasis in broadcast. After spending a couple years as a reporter and morning show anchor for a local ABC radio station in SLO, I returned to Cal Poly and completed my classes to earn a Multiple Subject CLAD teaching credential with an English supplement.
I joined the O'Farrell staff in the Fall of 2002, and have absolutely loved my time working with our AVID program, as well as our ASB, student activities program. As Principal, I am responsible for our Middle School Academy. In addition, I handle all of our state and federal testing schoolwide.
