About Me

I’m originally from Idabel, Oklahoma and lived for a time in Bentonville, Arkansas before going to college at the University of Oklahoma in Norman. I majored in Judaic Studies with minors in percussion performance and Hebrew- I’m a big drum and language enthusiast!

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

I’m most looking forward to joining a cohort of people who are also passionate about culturally-responsive and relevant education from all different backgrounds and experiences.

Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?

He was the first person to really show me that my zip code and background didn’t HAVE to determine my future, and his dedication and love has been a constant reminder that I shouldn’t settle for others’ expectations.
