I was blessed to have attended SMA from 1st through 8th grade. I learned so much from my time at SMA and I made so many lifelong friends. Some of my favorite memories from childhood happened at this school, from Christmas plays to after school sports practices. I always loved the Christmas plays and one of my favorite memories was finally being an 8th grader because this meant I was now able to play the chimes. Another standout time for me was 6th Grade Astro Camp with Ms. Mac. One of the most fun weeks with all my classmates! Those kinds of memories will always pop up when I think back on my time at SMA.
Since leaving SMA in 2001, I went on to attend the Academy of Our Lady of Peace until I graduated in 2005. I was lucky to have so many of my SMA classmates continue on to OLP. After high school I went to San Diego State University where I graduated with a degree in journalism, communications, and film. After a brief stint of working at San Diego CW, I went back to school and attended California Hair Design Academy to become a hairstylist. I now work at Millicent & Company in La Mesa where I’m a lead stylist and trainer. I’ve called it home for almost six years now.
In 2015 I married the love of my life at the Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. Since that time my husband and I bought and sold a house in La Mesa and we moved into our dream house in Jamul, CA. In our beautiful victorian home, my husband and I have 3 wonderful cats and and an amazing golden retriever.
As I look back on childhood, I really am thankful to my parents for investing so much into my education. From SMA, to OLP & SDSU, they have been by my side and supported my dreams all the way. I know when I’m a parent, I will remember how much fun I had at SMA and would love to one day send my own children here.
