I was born and raised in Washington.
I hold a Masters in Education with a focus in Applied Behavior Analysis from the University of Cincinnati. For the last nine years, I have spent my career working at a clinic in Bellevue and other private schools throughout the area where I implemented behavior plans for students with autism working on social skills, academics and positive behavior plans. Before my work with students with autism, I graduated with her B.A in Community Psychology from the University of Washington. I have always had a passion for working with children and am so excited to work at St. Josephs as a Kindergarten teacher. I love watching the little milestones turn into big ones and the excitement early learners get when something clicks. I strive to make learning a fun and positive environment! I value my close relationships with my family and friends and love to spend summers in Montana.
