    I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcasting, emphasizing Creative Writing from Arizona State University. Past work experiences include a bookseller and then merchandising supervisor at Borders Books, Music, and Cafe and then a Communications Assistant in the Office of the Governor for Janet Napolitano.


    While working and writing for Governor Napolitano I discovered my love of education and returned to ASU to earn a Master’s of Education in Secondary Education, Curriculum and Instruction, again from ASU. My first teaching job was in west Phoenix, after which I worked at Grand Canyon University, first as an academic counselor for online and evening campus students, and eventually as a student services adviser, assisting my students with both academic and financial services. While working at GCU I earned a second bachelor’s degree, this time in History, and took a graduate level course in Economics to further my knowledge.

    I eventually was hired to teach at a charter school in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. I lived there for three years teaching World History and Geography, U.S. History, Government, Economics, Street Law, Modern U.S.History, and even 8th grade Civics before being hired at Bioscience to fill the position of Junior Humanities-U.S. History 1-2H.
