I am a graduate of Centralia College, where I received my Associate Degree in Technical Arts in Accounting & Tax. Helping people to learn and grow has been a huge part of my life. I love to see a person truly come to understand a subject and put what they learn into practice, whether that means in the classroom or in their everyday life. Accounting is my passion, and therefore I love to talk about it. I love accounting and teaching about it because I love to bring order where there was none. I have also traveled to Guatemala, where I was surrounded by Spanish speakers and their culture. I hope to teach my students by guiding them to a deep understanding of the subject at hand, an understanding that will enable them not only to excel in an academic sense but also to learn life lessons such as diligence and the value of knowledge. I try to teach using conventional methods of instruction as well as videos and interactive projects. I believe that learning through experience has more value than many textbooks. I enjoy hiking in the Pacific Northwest, my home, jogging with my Australian Cattle Dog, gardening and reading about the world we inhabit as well as the people we share it with.

Q & A
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
I would help a student to see how the subject relates to everyday life. This might entail providing real-world problems to solve, or by simply providing the student with examples of how the concept applies in the world around them or directly in their life.
