Hi! I am an extremely proud member of this awesome institution, supporting and educating our children in Phoenix. I was born and raised in Phoenix and I am pleased to say that I attended South Mountain Community College as my initial collegiate experience, then moving on to Park University (Missouri) and University of Maryland. My wife and I met in the military (US Air Force) in 2002 in Tucson and have now been married ever since. Over that time, I’ve worked in higher education for nearly 15 years as a college recruiter, leader, and office manager, and most recently as a paraprofessional, substitute teacher, and full-time teacher for grade levels including Kindergarten, 1st-4th grades, and middle school. I am truly excited to be part of the Sun Valley Academy!
