I earned my Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Oakland University (OU) and Masters of Education Degree in Educational Leadership from Saginaw Valley State University.

I also graduated from the OU Leadership Institute, a program designed to further develop the members' leadership skills and increase their contributions to their community.

I taught in New Zealand through a teacher exchange program. Since 2008, I have been a math and science teacher in the Chippewa Valley Schools in Macomb, Michigan.

My academic career and experiences have inspired me to mentor others. I mentored students at OU. I received university honors: Summa Cum Laude and Keeper of the Dream Award.

I am dedicated to student success. I serve on the OU School of Education and Human Resources Development Board, Young Alumni Council, and Michigan-Shiga High School Exchange Committee.

I enjoy being an active member of the community. My interests include outdoors, fitness, sports, travel, and writing. I have had my columns published in the Detroit News, Oakland Press, and Macomb Daily.

I was recently named a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Digital Innovator and a fellow for the America Achieves’ Michigan Educator Voice Fellowship.

Why do I teach, you ask? I teach, because it is a highly rewarding and fulfilling profession. We share valuable information and important skills to encourage a love of learning that will serve students.

I do this work because I am committed to having a positive impact on the future of each student that I serve. You can click the button above to visit my website. Feel free to checkout my social links below.
