I grew up in Boulder County, Colorado, but as an adult I have lived in Kansas and Missouri. I have always loved meeting people from many different cultures and countries, which eventually led to my career in higher education. When I started teaching at Donnelly in 2014, I immediately felt right at home because of the diversity of our student body. I have also taught as an adjunct at Park University and at the Applied Language Institute at Penn Valley Community College.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, reading, playing piano, traveling, going for walks, and hanging out with my funny rescue dog.
