Graduated from Penn State in 2011 with a B.S. in Life Sciences Education. Completed all 4 years of schooling on the university's main campus. Studied tropical ecology in Costa Rica for a brief time. 


Taught IGCSE Biology in San Luis Arizona from 2011-2013. The school was five minutes from the Mexican border, with a student population of 2800+ and 98% ESL. 

This is my 5th year with OPS. I've taught a plethora of subjects: Biology, Earth Environmental Science, 8th Grade Science, 7th Grade Science, Freshman Seminar, and Oral Communications.

I'm looking forward to another great year!


This is my seventh year teaching high school science, and my 3rd year with middle school as well. I spent my first two years teaching on the Arizona-Mexico border. As a founding teacher of OPS, it is so exciting to see how much it has grown!

I live in Henderson with my trio of pets, and venture towards the Triangle area most weekends. I love to travel and am hoping to add my 3rd continent within the next year. In my spare time, I like to read, write, and watch sci-fi. 


Science is awesome!
