I am a graduate of Dartmouth College, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and minored in Education, and Stanford University, where I earned a Master of Arts in Education with a focus on 8-12th grade English Language Arts. Since graduation, I have been working in a private Catholic school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, teaching English primarily to 9th and 10th graders students. I also teach a course on Creative Writing, which is open to all students and examines how to craft a compelling narrative in any medium, including college essays and fiction. As a learner and an educator, I have always been most passionate about reading and writing because I believe each student should have the tools to critically examine and better the world around them. I firmly believe that every person is a lifelong learner with strengths to build upon and areas to improve in, and I have committed myself to supporting scholars in that learning process.

In my spare time, I am an avid reader--always looking to add to my classroom’s collection-- and enjoy yoga, being outside, and learning more about the world through travel.
