I received my Bacher of Arts degree in English literature from Ball State University in Muncie in 2007. 

I also hold a Master of Arts in Teaching from Western Oregon University.


I have three years experience teaching, one as a substitute at Hood River Valley High School, and two as an English teacher and head of curriculum design at St. Johns International School in Bangkok, Thailand. 


I grew up in the suburbs of Indianapolis, Indiana, in a town much like White Salmon. I played basketball, football, and baseball, and have always been a fan of sports. I am a huge Indiana Pacers fan, as well as an Indianapolis Colts fan.

In March of 2008, after graduating from my undergraduate program, I moved to Portland. I was attracted by the beautiful landscapes of Oregon, and my love of all things outdoors. I am a huge fan of camping, hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, gardening, and anything else that can be done outside. After moving to Portland, I worked in landscape construction while working on my Masters degree. Midway through this program, I moved to Hood River and immediately fell in love with the Columbia Gorge area. When I finished this program, I moved to Thailand in order to broaden my horizons. I had not landed a teaching job in Oregon, so I figured I should travel and see some of the world before settling down. While living in SE Asia, I taught at an international school, studied the Thai language, and traveled around the region to various islands and countries. This was a great experience, and working with students from thirteen different countries taught me the true meaning of differentiation. 

I returned to the Portland area two years later in May of 2013, and subsitute taught in Hood River and Salem for the year before being offered a job at Columbia High School. I can say without exaggeration that this is my dream job. I love being in the classroom so much, and feel very grateful for the opportunity to become a part of the community of White Salmon. I am also enjoying my position as an assitant football coach for the 7th and 8th grade team. This has truly been a high point for me, both personally and professionally. I am always happy to meet new people and to collaborate on new projects, so feel free to contact me if you have any questions (or just to say "hi")!
