As a Child Development Consultant with First 5 California, I serve in the Early Learning Programs and Partnerships Office. The focus of my duties includes providing training and technical assistance to early educators that promote quality environments, and meaningful interactions, and build family engagement for the diverse populations of children birth thru five across California. Prior to joining First 5 California, I was a Program Officer at SETA Head Start in Sacramento, overseeing the staff and educational operations of 13 early learning centers. I hold a Masters of Arts in Education degree, with a focus on Human Development from CSUS (Go, Hornets!) and have over 30 years of experience as a teacher, coach, and trainer in the early childhood education field.
