I am a doctoral student in the school of education at Colorado State University. Before that, I received a Masters in Theology from Princeton Seminary and a Bachelors in English Literature from the University of Illinois. I have a profound love of language, and am fascinated by the way we share our stories. I'm delighted to help with everything from test prep to writing skills and reading comprehension.

When I'm not reading everything I can get my hands on, I like to go on adventures in Colorado and around the world. I've lived on four continents and love to explore as much as possible. My husband and I like to camp, hike, cook, and dance. Our dog, Dr. Rufus T. Barleysheath, likes to dance with us.
