Esmeralda was born and raised in the Walla Walla valley. After high school, she attended WWCC and transferred to WSU where she received a bachelor’s in psychology. Soon after graduating, she began working for the Walla Walla Public Schools as an intervention specialist where she had the opportunity to work with both high school and elementary students.

She loved every second of working with students and having a job where she is happy to go to work.  She joined CIS because of her deep desire to help our students succeed in school and in life.  

Outside of work, Esmeralda loves playing soccer, traveling, and spending time with her loved ones.
