I attended Phillips Academy in Massachusetts for high school, Vanderbilt University for my undergraduate degree in Women's Studies, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) for my master's degree in HR Education (now Education Policy, Organization and Leadership). I love that I have lived in New England, the South, and most recently, the Midwest. I've worked in education for over a decade, starting with an HR-Payroll information systems project and then teaching and learning with ATLAS teaching and learning with technology team at UIUC.
In 2017, I accepted a position teaching the Pathways young adults class with the Ritenour Adult Learning Center. Working with out-of-school youth has been incredibly rewarding and challenging. Each day is different and my students inspire me.
I live in the greater St. Louis area with my husband, James, and daughter, Ollie. We have a dog named Bart.
