I was born and raised in Marin County and it has been a blessing that has created many opportunities for me in the community. I attended San Rafael High and graduated from Sonoma State with a degree in Pre-Physical Therapy with a minor in Gerontology.
My career path has taken me down many revenues with the last 6 years being in the service industry.

When you combine construction and the service industry, you learn to think on your feet and problem solve quickly. These are just a few of the skills that I have brought with me to PRANDI.
I enjoy traveling, photography, bowling, classic cars and spending time with my family. Most weekends are consumed by my two dogs and getting them outdoors to explore with my partner.
