Hi - I am looking forward to my third year at O'Farrell this year! I teach 1st, 3rd, 7th and 8th Grades PE and 6th Grade Spanish-Speaking Culture.

I am originally from Georgia and received my ABJ (Journalism) from the University of Georgia - Go Bulldawgs! I received my MS in Physical Education from Emporia State University. For 20 years I worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer.

I moved from Washington, DC 2 summers ago with my husband, Will. We have two terrific daughters: Elizabeth (25) and Jillian (22). Elizabeth graduated from the second oldest college in the U.S. - The College of William and Mary (Williamsburg, VA) - and works as a flight attendant with American Airlines based in Dallas. Jillian graduated with a business degree in hospitality management from Virginia Tech University (Blacksburg, VA) and is now working at the Marriott Renaissance in Indian Wells, CA in food and beverage management.  

We live in Tijuana - yep, I cross the border every day. I love sports, fitness, travel, and being with my family and friends. I have lived on five continents and in six countries: U.S. Argentina, Tanzania, Niger, Panama, Spain and now Mexico! I have visited 50 countries. I am looking forward to a great new school year and getting to know all my new students.
