I graduated from Hays High School in 2008 and Fort Hays State University in 2014 and 2016.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology and Master of Science in Biology, both from Fort Hays State University.
This is my first year teaching at Ruppenthal Middle School.
As a graduate student, I taught general biology and botany laboratories at Fort Hays State University.
I have several furred and feather children—one dog, four cats, two chickens, and many wild animals.
When I am not teaching, I spend my time working for my non-profit organization that serves domestic and wild animals. I also like to spend my free time hiking, camping, backpacking, and mountain biking.
