About Me

Southern California transplant now residing in the City of San Francisco.  I graduated from USF with a BS in Mathematics and minor in Physics, then went onto pursue a MS in Applied Mathmatics from UCI. I started my carreer in the community college system working as an Adjunct Instructor at CoA & LMC in addition to working as Math Lab Coordinator at LMC. I currently work teaching full-time at CoA.

As a first generation college student, I understand the many struggles students of different backgrounds face. As an educator, my goal is to help you gain the tools necessary for you to be successful in your current and future coursework. I firmly believe that organization, time & effort, utilization of campus resources, study groups, and office hours are key components to your success at the college.
