Hello Mountie Math Students! I earned B.S. degrees in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from UC Riverside in 2012, as well as an M.S. degree in Statistics in 2014. My first experience with teaching was as a teaching assistant in the Statistics Department at UC Riverside. I really enjoyed meeting new students each term and guiding them through their statistics coursework. After that I went on to become an adjunct professor at Chaffey College and Victor Valley College, where I taught for three years.
In Fall 2019, I was hired as a full-time professor at Mt. SAC, and have loved being a part of the campus community ever since. I have a passion for making math interesting and interactive in the classroom, and am excited to work together with each new group of students to create a fun and inclusive learning environment.
I am committed to students leaving my statistics courses being able to see that statistics are all around us; to critically analyze data and ask thought-provoking questions that enable the student to uncover the story that is being told; to apply their newfound scientific and ethical framework to understand and make sense of statistical research; and to think beyond the data to identify the implications of a study for past, present, or future analysis.
I am committed to students leaving my calculus courses being able to solve practical applications of real-world phenomena; to ask thought-provoking questions that enable them to logically approach any problem and condense it into simple facts and procedures; to apply their newfound scientific and ethical framework to understand and make sense of how things work; and to appreciate the importance of the study of mathematical change in various aspects of our society.
Hello Mountie Math Students!
I am so excited that you have decided to take Elementary Statistics with Support or Trigonometry ! Your success is important to me, so to help prepare you for the next part of your educational journey, I would like to share some information with you about my courses and classroom environments.
Click on one of my classes below to explore the structure and goals of each class.
Our classroom environment will be one that supports your diverse perspectives and honors your identities. Names are very personal and very powerful.

I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge that Mt. SAC is geographically situated on the traditional lands of the native, indigenous peoples whose land was taken from them.
