Background

In 1998 I relocated from Ireland and settled in San Diego. I earned a Master of Arts in Education from California State University San Marcos and spent five years teaching in an Elementary school.  While working as part of the TRIO SSS program I retrained as a tutor up to master tutor trainer level, and an academic coach, so that I could better serve the needs of our students. I have a similar background to many of our students and feel passionately about helping them to be successful in reaching their academic and career goals.  I enjoy hiking, traveling, live theater, reading and sewing.
