One of the reasons I enjoy working in Education is my belief that education is important for everyone to have access to. I have volunteered time with Achieve Minneapolis to help provide opportunities to High School students as they work to determine if college or a job are the right path for them after graduation.


Travel is something that I have been doing for years. I am thankful that while growing up my parents took us on family vacations to see the country.

I was fortunate enough to do a semester in Europe my Junior year of undergrad. During my graduate program I was able to visit a few countries in Asia.

Some day, I hope to be able to visit more countries all over the world. Until that day comes, I my partner and I have chosen to be a host family. We are currently in year two of hosting high school students and are enjoying the opportunity to learn about other cultures while sharing ours. We also enjoy the new foods we get to try!
