Dean of Women | Social Science Department Chair | AP European History & AP US History Teacher

Hello! I have the privilege of serving our young women at Berean as the Dean of Women. It's a joy for me to partner with families to provide wisdom and counsel to their daughters, with the goal of guiding them toward holiness, discernment, and Christian living. In a world full of difficulty, I pray that our young women graduate from Berean knowing and abiding in the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

In addition to serving as a Dean, I serve in Berean's Social Science Department as Department Chair, and as a History teacher. Upon graduating from UC Berkeley, I started my career in education, as a History teacher. I look forward to giving students a better understanding of the past, so they are able to see God's sovereign hand directing world events, and so they are better equipped as global citizens to make godly decisions in the future.

When I'm not spending time with Berean's young women or teaching history, I am living life with my incredible husband of 17 years and our two children.

Favorite Bible Verse 

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy" (Psalm 103:1-4)
