I am a freelance programmer, aspiring children's book author, and mother of two willful girls.

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from California Lutheran University, followed by a Master of Science in Computer Science from UCSB. I worked as a software engineer for a decade, until I decided to take an adventurous leap in 2016. I quit my job to invest more time on family, my writing career, and my own coding projects.

Now I spend my days furiously spinning tall tales about fictional characters, valiantly advocating for peace between my to-be-read list and my to-do list (a losing battle), exploring the natural wonders of Southern California with my little hellions, and capturing the beautiful moments through it all.
