Professional Background
I attended Lower Columbia College as a Running Start student in 2012, and ultimately graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in English Literature and minors in Spanish and Law, Diversity & Justice from Fairhaven College. I also obtained by Secondary Teaching certification through the Woodring College of Education, and I spent the last four years teaching Language Arts in K-12 schools.
I'm passionate about supporting students to create the future they want to have, and I am honored to be doing that work here at Highline!

About Me
If you are ever looking to strike up a conversation with me, here are a few guaranteed hits:
- Your pets (Yes, I want to see pictures)
- My pet (I have a cat named Dianna and a moral obligation to show everyone pictures of her; you've been warned)
- Any show, movie, podcast, or book you're into right now
- Roller Skating (No, I cannot do any tricks)
