Becky was raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland. She attended the University of Delaware where she studied Early Childhood Education. During undergrad Becky had the opportunity to study
abroad in Greece where she taught at an Athens Community School creating social emotional
curriculum for her students. Postgrad, she began working as a first-grade teacher in Maryland.
During the pandemic, Becky decided to move to San Diego, California where she taught a small
pod of students. When the following school year rolled around, she then worked at a project-
based learning charter school where students were encouraged to explore their creativity by
creating cross curricular projects throughout the year. While teaching she began to explore her
interest in social work and mental health. As she continued teaching the following year, she
advised her students to prioritize their mental health and wove in many social emotional lessons
throughout the curriculum. Becky’s continued interest in social work led her to apply to graduate
school at San Diego State University. As a first year MSW student she is most excited to learn
more about counseling in educational settings and learning to facilitate group and family
counseling. She is passionate about accessible mental health services for all and empowering
young people to feel comfortable advocating for their needs.
Outside of work and school, Becky enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and dog. She
is an avid hiker and teaches Pilates. She loves exploring new areas in San Diego and cooking
meals with family.
