I'm brand new to Dixon High School and greatly anticipating the school year! I am originally from Tacoma, Washington but have mostly been on the east coast since 2005. I attended the University of South Carolina for my undergraduate degree in English with a cognate in secondary education. In 2010, I married my husband Patrick, and shortly after, finished up my Master of Arts in teaching degree with the University of Southern California through their online cohort.

I have been teaching since 2014, when I started my career at New Bern High school. As a Marine family, we relocate often, so we spent a year in DC studying Bulgarian. We then moved to Bulgaria where we lived for two years and I had the opportunity to teach English at private institute. We jumped back to NC and I picked back up at Jacksonville HS before making two more moves to El Paso, TX and Stafford, VA.

We have two daughters, Winnie (5) and Maggie (3) and we love being back in NC and 15 minutes from the beach!
