About Me

I am a mom of two and a US Navy Veteran. I completed my BA in English at Arizona State University and MFA in Creative Writing at Full Sail University.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to learning new skills that will allow me to become a teacher that my future students will admire.

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

I had three teachers that made a lasting impact. In middle school I had Mr. McGowan, who always dreamed big for me even when I wouldn’t. In high school I had Mr. Muller who was always ready to listen to me and would give me push when I wanted to give up. In my MFA program Prof. Merriam taught me that there were far more ways to teach that could keep students engaged than I had ever realized.
