I’m a guardian of 7 cats (all rescues or re-homed to me), Itinerant Teacher of Deaf and Hard of Hearing, my California Teacher’s Association local’s LGBTQ+ Rep, Human Rights Rep, treasurer, and representative for the National Teacher’s Association Representative Assembly.

I have supported and helped two teachers start GSAs on their school sites this year. I am a historical recreationist who knits chain mail and weaves. I also collect Monopoly sets with over 120 in my collection. I enjoy being a member of the Kiwanis LGBT Club to help our LGBTQ+ youth.
