I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington in the northwest corner of the United States. Ethnically, I am one-half Vietnamese, one-quarter Japanese, one-eighth Welsh, and one-eighth Spanish. In an environment where most students are from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, I feel right at home at Discovery College! I have two Bachelor of Science Degrees, one in Physics and the other in Astronomy, both from the University of Washington, and a Master in Teaching Degree from Seattle University. My experiences in education include teaching science, IB Physics, mathematics, and ESOL in public, private, and international schools within the United States, Vietnam, and China. In my spare time I love to travel, hike, go camping, swim, read, watch science fiction, and play video games.
