I graduated from Sonoma State University with a B.A. in Communication & Media Studies and an English minor. Concentrating on film and writing, I joined the student newspaper and became editor-in-chief my last year. During this time I acquired and developed expertise in teaching, training and mentoring fellow students. Realizing how valuable it is to help others, I work one-on-one to improve thinking, reading and math skills, while reviewing entertainment topics on YouTube and submitting freelance features stories for The Press Democrat.
