Hello! I am a native of western Pennsylvania. This is where I grew up, attended high school, and began my college career. I completed my Bachelor of Arts at the University of Pittsburgh in 2011. I left Pittsburgh to attend the University of Chicago, from which I graduated in 2013. I stayed in Chicago to teach at the college level for 2.5 years, before returning to the Pittsburgh area. Underlying my academic experience is my passion for education. I am a first-generation college graduate (or as I like to call it, an "academic immigrant"). This means that I've learned on my own, and often the hard way, about the ins and outs of higher education, so I can understand how challenging - and truly rewarding - it can be. A solid education is as important today as ever, and it really can change your world for the better. I look forward to hearing from you and helping with your studies!
