I completed my Bachelors of Science in Education Philosophy at the University of Oregon (Go DUCKS!) with minors in Music and Special Education in 2009. I completed my Masters of Arts in Elementary Education in 2011. For my student teaching I taught 5th grade at Marshall Elementary School in Marysville, WA. I spent five years substituting in multiple districts in Snohomish County and most recently in the North Thurston School District. 2015-2016 I spent half of the year running the Autism Program at South Bay Elementary School and the second half of the year teaching Kindergarten. I was hired in 2016 to teach 1st grade at Woodland Elementary School.
I have also been a member of the Washington Air National Guard since 2005. I am currently assigned to the 225th Air Defence Squadron at McChord AFB as an instructor for Air Surveillance Technitions.
