I graduated from the University of Washington in 1996 and traveled across the state to join the ranks of our "arch enemy" at Washington State University for graduate school in Speech-Language Pathology, completing my masters degree in 1998. It wasn't until about 2010 that I realized I have always been a coach. In middle school, I was a peer coach. In high school, I volunteered as a counselor at a nature conservation camp for 5th and 6th graders. In college, I began coaching football at the high school level. My studies lead me to working with elementary and secondary school students focusing on speech and language development. However, I absolutely LOVE teaching math. It's numbers that really show a young person's mind at work. My passion is helping others succeed. When the light goes on in a young person's mind, it brings a huge smile to my face. I simply love coaching others to success. In my spare time, I enjoy reading spy novels, cycling and watching sports.
