I was born in Huntington Beach, California and went to school at The George Washington University in Washington, DC. While there, I played Division 1 Volleyball and majored in Sociology and Art. I then moved to Oregon and attended the University of Oregon and earned my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Teaching and ESOL endorsement. I taught 2nd/3rd grade at McKenzie Elementary in Blue River, Oregon and then taught 3rd grade and Kindergarten in Veneta, Oregon. Now I am teaching 3rd grade at Tom McCall and love being apart of this amazing school and district! I Live in Redmond with my Husband Jake, daughter Charlie and puppy Orvis! I love hiking, working out, cooking, reading, and of course teaching!
