Education: B.S. in nutrition from California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo and M.S. in nutrition from UC Davis.

Experience: Three years of part-time teaching experience at Merritt College, City College of San Francisco, Las Positas College, Diablo Valley College and Los Medanos College.

Most interesting thing about you that students wouldn’t suspect: “That I was a professional triathlete for two years.”

Impression of SRJC/Santa Rosa: “Very pretty, lots of trees and nature, and happy, nice, smiling people.”

If you weren’t teaching at SRJC, you’d be: “Home with my 3-year-old, Elijah, my partner, Eric and my dog, Jack.”

Advice for students: “Be passionate!”
