Your Family Specialist
Degrees and Certifications:
Our Lady of the Lake University Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies with a certification as a Bilingual Teacher and certified in grades 1st-6th grade.
I was a bilingual teacher for 23 years and am so excited to serve the Serna community as a family specialist.
I am a mom of two wonderful sons. A wonderful daughter in law and a beautiful granddaughter. Family is everything to me! Making memories and having traditions is fundamental to family life. Being our child's first teacher is the most important job we have. I am here to help parents make that happen.
