I fell in love with teaching after spending multiple years as a teaching artist in the Seattle area. Having moved to the northwest ten years ago, I began my adventures in teaching while working for several non profits in the area that include Pratt Fine Arts, Seward Park Clay Studio, Gage Academy and the Frye Art Museum. Helping youth discover and value their voices through engagement with the visual arts has become a passion paired with my own art practice. 

Bachelor Fine Arts, Indiana University, 2004

I graduated from Whitworth College with a double major in Secondary Education and Physical Education, a minor in Computer Science, and K-12 teaching endorsements in Physical Education, Health, and Instructional Technology. In 2005 I earned my M.A. in Diverse Learners from Washington State University gaining my K-12 Special Education endorsement. I have taught at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels throughout my career. I have also been a sports coach since I was 16 and have coached soccer, basketball, and tennis at a variety of levels, preschool through adult. I currently coach my daughter's 5th grade select basketball team. I am married and have 3 kids who keep me busy outside of school.
