I grew up in Montclair, CA, which is about 30 miles east of Los Angeles. I then attended Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and received a Bachelors of Arts in Physics with a minor in Spanish. During my undergraduate, I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain, and lived in a homestay. My education was essential to my growth as an individual, and I hope to share this passion for education with you all. I'm a huge sports fan, particularly the Dodgers and Lakers. I also love animals, and I currently have 4 cats and 1 dog.
