I was born and raised near Cleveland, Ohio, and attended Marietta College where I received my bachelors in Middle School Education with a concentration in math and science. After I graduated, I moved to Marion, Ohio, where I taught 7th grade math. A year later I moved to Denver where I have been teaching at McAuliffe. When I am not in the classroom you can usually find me outside enjoying Colorado’s beautiful weather. A few of those activities include hiking, reading, and playing with my dog Annie.
