Tell us a little about yourself!

– I’m originally from Arizona and attended the University of Arizona before moving to San Antonio, TX for 9 years. I moved back to Arizona to work for community services organization that brought me into contact with CIO Solutions and led to my move to California. I fell in love with Santa Barbara the first time I visited and wanted to move there and two years later through a series of unexpected events I moved SB adjacent which is still amazing. I have 3 dogs that take up most of my time and I’m still exploring the Central Coast and finding new and exciting things to keep me busy.
