I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's degree in Classical Studies. This is an Ancient Roman/Greek/Egypt history/language degree which opened up the door for me to teach Latin at FLVS. Now as a Reading Instructor, I hope I can instill in my students a love of learning and reading. I hold the bar high for my students because I care about each one of you and I want you to reach your academic goals :)
In my free time--I like to hike, read, go to the gym, travel.....and I LOVE good food and to cook!!
