I am a former professional athlete and current teacher, mentor, and coach passionate about helping students find the best possibilities for their future.
I have over nine years of teaching experience, all in special education. I first fell in love with teaching while working as a paraprofessional, which motivated me to get my teaching credentials.
I also started a nonprofit called UP. Mentoring that provided resources and opportunities to students from underserved communities.
