About the author

Welcome! I'm so glad you're here!

I am an author, elementary school teacher, and a “big goal” person. I grew up in Southern California and currently live in Houston, Texas with my husband and 2 daughters.

How my love for teaching began...

I began my teaching journey in 2005, and accomplished my first big goal in 2010 when I taught in a rural village in Ghana, West Africa. I wanted to see and experience the realities of education in a community and culture unlike my own. The experience changed me, to say the least. I will always hold that place, and those students, in my heart. I now have over a decade of teaching experience and hold an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction.

Fast forward 10 years to summer 2020,

In the heart of a global pandemic, and I found myself ready to tackle my next “big goal”- becoming an author. I always knew I wanted to write children’s picture books, but the ideas that came and went never seemed quite right. During those months at home when the world seemed closed, it all came together. My first book poured out of me, and I found myself jotting, writing, and typing in a blur of ideas of inspiration.

Early mornings are my writing time.

I wake up at 4am, listen to classical music, and sip my warm coffee in a quiet house. I don’t know how many books I will write, but I know that I love it, and I will keep doing it as long as I still love it. I tend to dive headfirst into the things I am passionate about and never look back!
