A little about me…

Originally from Southern California, I am the middle of three girls. I found my way through high school being a student athlete, ASB President and a regular of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Finishing up my senior year I was in the top 25 for academics at Riverside Poly and was voted first team All-State shortstop. Playing three sports in high school, track, basketball and softball, I decided to focus on softball and was blessed to get a scholarship and continue to play as a Fresno State Bulldog. I was a four-year starter, 4-time WAC Champion and played in the College World Series in 1999. After 4 years of softball and a math degree I began teaching at Clovis East and coaching their softball team. During my first year of teaching I had an opportunity to tryout for the Greek National team. After a year of training and competing I became the starting second baseman for Greece in the 2004 Olympics in Athens. Walking in the opening ceremonies representing the home country, competing at the highest level of competition for my sport and staying in the Olympic Village has been the most memorable experience in my life. But, I’m thinking this may be topped by my upcoming marriage J. Following my second year teaching in Clovis, I was asked to return to my Alma Mater in Riverside to coach my old softball team and teach math along side some of the teachers I grew up with. I taught at Riverside Poly for six years and was the head softball coach. For fun I like to hang with my family, friends and my dogs. You may find me working out, watching movies or traveling to major league baseball stadiums; I have been to 21 of the 30 ballparks. Almost 2 years ago I met the perfect man, a fellow baseball fanatic, who has changed my life… Now, I have moved to Templeton and embarking on a new adventure in life with my best friend, and the rest as they say is history…
