Why I Chose Education As My Career Choice:

I believe communication is the key to a person's success, both professionally and personally, and that a good foundation in reading and language starts at an early age. By working in the school setting, I'm able to instruct students in those necessary communication skills.

Personal Interests:

In my spare time, I enjoy exploring Kansas City. The Nelson Atkins Museum, City Market, and Crossroads Art District are some of my favorite spots in the city. I also enjoy reading, running, yoga, swimming, drawing, making jewelry, baking, listening to music, and spending time with my family.
