I am married to a wonderful and creative man named Ryan who I met while in college. Together, we have a beautiful daughter named Melody, a Greyhound named Simon, a Jack Russell named Kala, and an orange Tabby Cat named Zephyr. We moved to Austin in 2016 and love the city life so much! I graduated from The University of Texas at Arlington with a BA in Art, Psychology, and Social Work. In 2010, I began my journey in special education at a high-performing college preparatory school in Arlington, TX. In 2016, I was fortunate enough to join the Eanes-Westlake ISD community, and became a Wildcat! I believe every kid should be an advocate for themselves. As a collaborative teacher, I will strive to build self-confidence, excellent study habits, and a life-long love for learning. Never stop wondering! Go Wildcats!!!!
