Education: BA Sociology–Occidental College; MS Special Education–Portland State University
Teaching Experience: I volunteered during my summers in college for a Braille Club that assisted kids with vision impairments on community excursions. It was the beginning of a path that piqued my interest in the world of special education which has led me to my 11th rewarding year of teaching at Shriners Hospital for Children–Portland. I taught in a Structured Learning Center classroom with the West-Linn/Wilsonville School District before becoming a hospital teacher. I have worked for the PSU International Special Programs department for the last 5 summers, instructing American Culture and English Communication Skills for groups of college students visiting from Korea and Japan.
Hobbies: I enjoy hiking, biking, jogging, skiing, sailing, rock climbing, visiting national parks, volunteering with community organizations that serve children, reading, and singing.
Favorite Book: Among my favorite books are pretty much anything from Malcolm Gladwell and C.S. Lewis.
