Tina joined the Hollywood Schoolhouse community in 1998, first as a parent and then a year later as a staff member. She has worked at HSH for 18 years and during that time she has worn many different hats. Her current position, as part of the Administrative team, is Director of Administrative Operations and Support. Prior to coming to Hollywood Schoolhouse, she served as Assistant Director of Education at Villa Esperanza, a private, special needs school that services the autistic community. Tina started off her career as a Preschool teacher in 1987 working at a private school in Beverly Hills. While attending college at Cal State Northridge and Los Angeles as a Classical Voice major and Education minor, she worked as a teacher’s assistant at Ivanhoe Elementary School, where she worked along side the same teachers she had as an elementary student (she attributes her love and passion for working with children and families from this experience in her life).
Tina has been married for 29 years to husband, David. She is the proud mom to one son, Dylan, who attended the Schoolhouse and is an Animator and VFX artist. She also has two beloved dogs, Oreo and Tallulah.
Tina is an avid reader and enjoys singing in her spare time.
