I was born and raised in Illinois, where I attended the University of Illinois for undergrad. From there, I moved to Chicago, where I worked as a CPA before turning my passion for education into a career. I worked with students in Chicago, Belize, Denver, and China in a variety of roles before receiving my M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction, with an emphasis in gifted education, from the University of Denver. I student taught at Carson while in grad school, and was lucky enough to continue teaching here after graduating. I am thrilled to be a part of the Carson community and love helping students exercise creativity and grow their passions.
Outside of school, I am a fan of reading, yoga, cooking, outdoor activities, and spending time with my family, friends, and beloved dog, Siggy.
