I grew up in Chicago, IL with 3 older siblings. I attended Carthage College in Kenosha, WI where I studied Elementary Education with a focus in Math and played volleyball all 4 years. In 2016, a year after graduating, I moved out to Denver, CO and began my first teaching position. At that time, I also enrolled in a program to become a certified Special Education Teacher. I absolutely love teaching! Outside of school, my passions include being with family and friends, playing volleyball, and exploring all the great restaurants Denver has to offer.
