I was born, raised and educated in central Texas and earned my Master of Science in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry before becoming an educator in 2009. My goal is to inspire students to love science as much as I do and to bring their inner scientist to the surface. While biology is my passion, I am also a women in STEM advocate and have built robotics programs in previous schools where females made up half of the team.
I’m an avid traveler and love being outdoors. I try to hike to the tops of mountains and scuba dive in the deep sea as often as possible. My desire to explore and experience the various cultures and regions of the world has led me to the international teaching community since 2017.
