I am the Coordinator of Innovation and Farm Lab Development for Encinitas Union School District. I oversee the development and expansion of on-site facilities, district farm-to-school efforts, organic certifications, facility use, marketing, community partnerships, and the DREAMS Campus educational programming (Design, Research, Engineering, Art, Math, and Science). I am inspired and driven by the district vision to provide real-world, project-based learning opportunities at Farm Lab that deepen student understanding of health and wellness, sustainability, and environmental stewardship.
I’ve been with the district since 2000, and have been a classroom teacher, student services coordinator, International Baccalaureate Coordinator, and Summer Academy Principal. I have presented internationally, and hold a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.
