Hello Jaguar Family!

It is such a pleasure to be your School Social Worker since August 
2019! Please note I am temporarily with Joli Ann Leichtag until the end of this distance learning period.

A bit about myself...
I received my Undergraduate Degrees at California State University San Marcos in Sociology and Criminal Justice Studies in 2014. At the University of Southern California, I went on to receive my Masters in Social Work with an emphasis on children and families in 2016. I am also bilingual in English and Spanish.

I was born and raised in Southern California. As a school social worker, it is my passion to work with students and their families to help them achieve their educational goals with a focus on empowering their whole sense of being. I will work passionately to help our students the best way I can! When I am not busy presenting, counseling or researching resources, I am wholeheartedly spending time with family and friends, enjoying nature and cuddling with a book. Oh and did I mention my dog Peter? He is my sunshine!
