Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. Sports have always been a huge part of my life. I started out playing ice hockey when I was young and switched to soccer and track when I entered high school. After I graduated high school in 2008 I moved out to Arizona to attend college at Arizona State University. I continued to compete in track as a decathlete and a pole vaulter. I received my original degree from ASU in psychology. After college, however, I decided that teaching was the route that I wanted to take instead so I took some time and earned my teaching certification. This is going to be my 5th year teaching here at DVMS and I'm looking forward to another great year!
