Hospital Teacher, RCH Psychiatry
Education: BA in Liberal Studies from Oregon State University GO BEAVERS!
MA in Special Education and PBIS, Portland State University
Teaching Experience: I began my teaching career as an Educational Assistant in a secondary behavior classroom in the Tigard Tualatin School District. I loved this so much that I decided to go back for my masters in Special Education and took over as the teacher of record in that classroom in 2008. I wanted to continue in education but wanted a different track and was able to transition to the hospital school program at RCH Psychiatry in December 2015. I’m thrilled to be a part of such an awesome team!
Hobbies: I love doing anything outdoors, including volunteering on a non-profit small sustainable farm out in Colton OR. I also Crossfit, knit, read, travel, and enjoy hanging out with my friends and family and my awesome dog Freyja too!
