I grew up in the East Bay and received my BA and Teaching Credential from Saint Mary’s College in Moraga. At Saint Mary’s, I majored in Liberal Arts and minored in Government and Theater Arts. I have been in education for 35 years, 14 in the Diocese of Oakland and 21 at a private school in Oakland, which I started with three other teachers. This is my 11th year as principal at All Saints. I served on the school board of Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School for 6 years and have been a member of four WCEA/WASC accreditation teams for schools in the Diocese of Oakland. I am also a member of the diocesan finance board. I have been married for 28 years and have three grown children and one grandchild.
