I grew up in Ontario, California with my parents and three siblings. In 2010, I moved across the country to a beautiful small town on the shores of Lake Superior to attend Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin. I played collegiate softball for three years, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Geosciences: Geology and Water Science. After living in Austin, Texas for one year I moved to Vancouver, Washington to work in environmental restoration and educational outreach. I am new to Nampa, and this is my first year teaching at West.
