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 13th 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 also worked for the PSU International Special Programs department for many summers, instructing American Culture and English Communication Skills for groups of college students visiting from Korea and Japan.
Hobbies: My ideal Saturday includes going on an hour jog followed by yard work, all done while listening to a podcast or audiobook. I love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, sailing, rock climbing, visiting national parks, and volunteering with community organizations that serve children.
Favorite Book: Among my favorite books are pretty much anything from Malcolm Gladwell, C.S. Lewis, and Brené Brown.
