I am a native Nampan and a product of the Nampa School District. After graduating from Skyview High School in 2005, I attended Boise State University and graduated with a B.A. in English Teaching in 2011. I spent five years teaching at the middle school and high school levels in the cities of Idaho City and Meridian. While teaching, I earned a M.A. in Teaching English Language Arts at Boise State University. In 2018, I came back to my home and joined the Nampa School District. Aside from teaching, I love traveling, reading, watching Netflix, and spending time with my family.
