I am so excited to be on the Oak Bridge team.  I am a Chico native and love the community here, but I did live in Hawaii for 2 years.  I got my Bachelors from Chico State and my Masters in School Counseling from Brandman University.  I love being a counselor and look forward to meeting each of the students.
