Originally, I grew up in the Chicago-land area, eventually traveling South of the city where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Biology at Eastern Illinois University in 2017. Soon after, I traded in the corn fields of Central Illinois for the Colorado mountains to pursue my master’s degree in Environmental Science at the University of Colorado, Denver. Early on in my education I learned that I have a passion for teaching. Upon graduating, I began teaching 8th grade math within Denver Public Schools, which solidified my desire to work towards obtaining my teaching license. I am thrilled to be joining the McAuliffe International 8th grade science team this 2021/2022 school year! Outside of school you can catch me in the mountains snowboarding or hiking or around Denver gardening, biking, and supporting local musicians!
