I am a graduate of Brown University with a dual major in Classics and Medieval Studies. I currently teach Latin, English, and history at Fusion Academy in Tysons, VA.
I have been passionate about Latin from a young age, and that passion spurred me to study other topics with the same fervor. In addition to studying the Latin language, I have also studied Ancient Greek, Old English, Old Norse, Old Irish, and German. I love finding the patterns in languages and using language change to understand how ancient people thought about the world around them.
My particular specialty is in kingship rituals, and I wrote my senior thesis about kingship sacrifice in Iron Age Ireland. I love travelling, and Ireland is my favorite place out of the many countries I have visited.
When I am not teaching and tutoring, I enjoy dancing, knitting, and reading. My favorite book at the moment is The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
