I graduated high school from Eastwood High, Class of 2000 (GO TROOPERS!). After high school I attended the University of Texas at El Paso. I began my career working as a Behavioral Consultant for children with Autism. I worked as an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) instructor, consultant, and clinical supervisor for 6 years. Following my work as a behavioral consultant, I became a teacher. I taught 3rd grade for 6 years. I am proud of ALL my students! After 6 wonderful years of teaching I became the School Counselor for Stanton Elementary! I am PROUD to serve our students everyday!
