I was an elementary school resource teacher for 5 years before earning my doctorate. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, but my professional life was all in central North Carolina. My husband and I moved to Montana in 2017, when I began teaching at MSUB. We love the outdoors and enjoy hiking or camping, usually with our dog. We both play ultimate frisbee on the Billings club team.
