Expertise

I began my career in P12 education as a classroom teacher. I found my passion in STEM education through leadership opportunities focused on preparing students for successful lives after graduation. I served as a STEM instructional coach and district coordinator where I supported teachers and students on their path to discovering authentic and meaningful learning for all.
