I graduated from the University of Florida in 2010 with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and minor in Education. This will be my 5th year teaching Mathematics in Marion County. I have two children, Lily who is 8 and Rylan who is 4.
My Passions include music, art, and traveling. I have travelled to a number of different places including 3 international trips. Two of my most favorite trips were backpacking through Spain and the other was backpacking through Thailand. In the summer of 2015, I carried a 12lb pound pack and hike 20-30 km per day going from town to town on the North side of Spain. This passed summer I traveled to Thailand alone with close to an empty pack with nothing but a return ticket home. I find an emense amount of joy from exploring the world without any plans or any direction. Part of the fun in getting lost is finding your way back. To me traveling is about emersing myself into the culture of the locals and less about visiting resorts. I do love a lot of sports, although, I am not good at participating in any of them.
I am really excited to be working at Vanguard this year and I look forward to helping my students find their direction.
