Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Science in Biology Master of Arts in Teaching
I was born and raised in rural Southern Oregon outside of Winston and graduated from Douglas High School in 2005. After graduating, I attended Oregon State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology. After college, I worked as a field biologist both in Oregon and overseas in the Bahamas. It was during this time that I realized that I liked working with people and decided to take a job teaching English in South Korea. After 3 years doing that, I came back to the States and earned my Master of Arts in Teaching from Western Oregon University. This is my first year at St Paul and my first year teaching full time as a licensed teacher. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, traveling, and other forms of outdoor recreation.
