I was born and raised in Minnesota (land of 10,000 lakes!) and graduated from the University of Minnesota, studying Sociology and Spanish. While in college, I studied abroad in Toledo, Spain and enjoyed being fully immersed in another culture. Upon graduation, I taught English abroad in Ecuador through the program called WorldTeach. There I taught at a small university in Loja and feel grateful to have had the opportunity to travel, teach, and learn. After my year abroad, I decided to make another move to San Diego. I have been out on the west coast for five years and love it! Education has always been a passion of mine. I’ve worked volunteered bat several International Schools in Minneapolis, mostly supporting English Language Learners. This will be my third year working within the High Tech High Community and I feel extremely lucky and honored to be here. I started at HTHMA as an academic coach and was able to see first hand the benefits of inclusion. As an Inclusion Specialist, my goal is to create a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment for successful learning. I look forward to working with all of you!
