I am an Arizona native. I graduated from Arizona State University in 1999. After college, I taught children with emotional disabilities in public schools. In 2011, I made the switch to teaching children with autism in the private setting. I also train puppies to become service dogs for children with autism, epilepsy, and other disabilities. I am married and have an 11 year old son and 17 year old daughter. In my spare time I love to spend time camping with my family.
