I have been teaching in the Accounting Department at Cypress College since 1996. Preparing students for higher education or new careers is important to me as a teacher. I especially enjoy interacting with and learning from students.

Before Joining the staff at Cypress College, I taught at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, University of LaVerne, and Mt. San Antonio College. I gained accounting experience with one of the four largest international accounting firms for my Certified Public Accountant license and have had my own accounting practice.
I love any activity that involves being outdoors. I have three dogs, Zena and our 'fosters-that-became-ours', 12 year-olds Lily and Dusty. I volunteer regularly at the California German Shorthair Pointer Rescue. My favorite outdoor place to be is anywhere near a large body of water, especially where my dogs can swim!
