What do you like most about your job?
I love working with students and their families! Watching students build relationships, grow as learners, think creatively, and problem-solve is an awesome part of my job!

If you could do any job in the world besides what you do now, what would it be?
I would love to work with senior citizens and provide enriching and creative experiences for them. To bring a little happiness into their world each day would be perfect.

What’s your favorite hobby?
My favorite hobby is cooking. I love experimenting with spices, flavors, and fresh ingredients. I very rarely make the same recipe more than once except for chocolate chip cookies!
