I was born and raised in Pinole, Calif. After graduating high school, I moved to Deerfield, Ill. for college, where I majored in athletic training. During college, my family moved to Southern Oregon. Coming home during summers and holidays, I fell in love with the area. After college, I moved into the area and worked various jobs unitl I was able to find my dream job of being the Athletic Trainer at Crater High School. My job only got better when Providence began to provide this position for the school and hired me to continue in my role with Crater.
