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 second year at St. Paul and I look forward to continuing to help students here develop a passion for science. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, traveling, and other forms of outdoor recreation.
