About Me

  • I graduated from UTEP (University of Texas at El Paso) with a B.S. Degree in Chemistry in 1997.  I attended graduate school at NMSU (New Mexico State University) pursuing a M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering.  In 2000, I was hired by Baker Atlas as an engineer and thus began my tenure in the oil and gas sector. I have worked in the oil and gas industry for the past 15 years.  I have held a varity of positions: Engineer, Global Training Instructor, Sr. Global Training Instructor, US Sales and Marketing, Asia Pacific Region Technical Sales and Support Manager, and Asia Pacific Region General Manager.  While I enjoyed the industry and traveling all over the world, my heart has always been in teaching.  So, with an eye to helping tomorrow's leaders, I left the oil and gas industry and began a new career as a high school science teacher.  This year will be my first year teaching and I am very much looking forward to it.
  • This is my first year at SHS.
