Delilah grew up in Roseville, California and is the first one in her family to graduate from college. She attended Sonoma State University and graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s in chemistry. While in college, she held leadership positions in both the Student Health Activities Club and the Pre-Health Club. In addition, she was a chemistry grader, a supplemental instructor who attended lectures and hosted supportive study sessions, and a college-level science and math tutor. This allowed her to influence students by acting as a mentor in both their academic achievements and career aspirations. The impact she had on the student body was one of the reasons why she was selected as the graduation speaker. After graduation, she became a teacher and worked with a wide range of students from kindergarten to high school. She continues to work on educational research projects through her university.
Delilah has been told that she makes challenging material more relatable which in turn makes it more understandable. She is honored to be part of the ESM team so she can continue her passion for helping students not only discover their dreams but achieve them as well.
Outside of teaching, Delilah is a member of a local symphonic band and volunteers at a cat shelter by fostering cats and kittens.
