My two degrees (B.A. in Deaf Studies with an emphasis in teaching, and M.A. in Management with an emphasis in Diversity and Communication) really sum up my interests and passions. I love to be involved with the Deaf Community, teaching is more than just a job to me, learning more about diversity (in all its forms) is a continuous goal of mine, and analyzing the power of words fascinates me. My hobbies are doing CrossFit, being outdoors, and spending time with my family. I consider myself to be energetic, approachable, and open-minded. If you need something, don’t be afraid to ask. I am an ally to ALL students!

I recently completed a Ph.D. from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Before this I studied Philosophy and Religion at Biola University. Among my favorite activities: playing catch with my son, dancing with my daughters, hanging out with the Mrs., exploring the outdoors, mountain biking, poker, engaging in interesting conversations about religion, God (these are not the same thing), politics (not the Fox news variety), sports, meaning, morality, destiny and just about anything controversial. If you’d like a safe place to hang out or talk, please stop by. You’re welcome any time.

Hi everyone! I am currently pursuing my graduate degree in Masters of Science in Human Services with a Specialization in Social and Community. I studied Sociology here at Crafton for many years and then transferred to Cal State University of San Bernardino and graduated in 2016. While going to school and balancing life, I completed a 6 year term in the United States Air Force Reserves. On my free time, I enjoy hiking, learning, spending time with my family, and meeting new people. Two aspects of life that I love are making a difference in this world and helping others. If you need anyone to talk to, feel free to come by my office and I would love to meet you.

I have been involved in building an accepting college community for LGBTQ students since my own undergraduate years at a Catholic university when I was a member of the Gay Straight Alliance and a Resident Assistant to college students who lived on campus and were dealing with life’s many challenges. I graduated from Redlands East Valley High School and was once a student at Crafton Hills. I now live in Highland with my husband, two teenage daughters, and two dogs.

I am a biophile, a lover of living things, a student of the amazing diversity of life on our planet. I teach biology at CHC and manage a nature sanctuary for the Audubon Society. On questionnaires that ask about gender identity, race, religion, and politics, I am always “other”.

I am a faculty member with the Department of Communication and Language. My primary teaching and research interests are in the field of intercultural communication. My class is a space where students can express their ideas and dialogue on social issues without fear of being disrespected, rejected, and silenced. My research examines the role of power in constructing identities and relationships between different cultural communities based on the intersection of race, gender, and class.

Hello! A little bit about me…I earned a Masters of Science degree in Educational Counseling and Guidance from California State University, San Bernardino. I’ve worked in the Community College setting since July 2013 and am currently employed with Chaffey College and Crafton Hills College as an Adjunct (Part-Time) Counselor. Also, I am a Counseling 100 - Student Success and The College Experience instructor and soon will provide Online Counseling services through Crafton Hills College. Although being a counselor plays a huge role in my life, I also enjoy exercising, the outdoors, video games, and travel. Need help or someone to talk to? I’m here! Please don’t be afraid to ask. Additionally, I am bilingual and fluent in both English and Spanish languages. Looking forward to meeting you some day. Welcome to Crafton!
