I am a transplant to the Bay Area, having grown up in paradise—Hilo, Hawaii.  I am passionate about increasing opportunities for young children with special needs to be educated with their typically developing peers.  My most favorite extracurricular activity, at the moment is riding horses and volunteering at a therapeutic riding stable.  I also enjoy running in the mountains with my dog, Bogey, and travelling.  I have two bio children, and two bonus children with my current partner.
