Ms. Esther was born in Texas and raised in Southern California. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Development from UC San Diego and her Master of Arts degree in Leadership from Azusa Pacific University. She started her professional career as an elementary school classroom teacher, and since then has worn multiple hats in administrative, leadership, teaching and support roles in non-traditional education settings. She loves being able to develop programs and support students and educators to be the best they can be and is excited to be able to apply her passions in her role here at The Arbor as Program Director.
During her free time, she enjoys all that revolves around good food, a head-clearing outdoors walk, and some “me time” reading and writing at local coffee shops.
