Greetings! I look forward to meeting you. I have 16 years experience as a high school English teacher. I also taught for a year in Cambodia where I taught ESL to 1st, 3rd, 7th, and 10th graders. Although I have been teaching for a long time, each student is unique and teaches me something valuable. I am excited to meet all my new students and help them reach their academic goals.

I am a wilderness enthusiast, and I enjoy spending time outdoors swimming, backpacking, and mountain biking. At home, I enjoy reading, photography, and cooking. I am an Arizona native and have lived in Phoenix, Buckeye, Glendale, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, and Chandler. I love animals, and I have a dog and two cats. In fact, my love of animals prompted me to become a vet tech for the last two years. I worked at an animal hospital taking care of dogs and cats with neurological problems. Furthermore, I am passionate about travelling, and over the years, I have explored 21 countries around the world. Learning about other cultures is a great way to broaden my perspective and increase my world view.
