I grew up in Arlington, lived in Austin for four years, and then I moved to South America after graduating college. I studied English and education at The University of Texas. I also received my Master of Education in Gifted and Talented Education from Southern Methodist University in Dallas and am currently working on my doctorate at Abilene Christian University.

After college, I taught for eight years at other private schools. I also worked for a short time as an editor and writer for two educational publishing companies. I joined the Hill Country faculty in 2016.

What is your favorite sport?
I love running and I used to run track and cross country in high school.

What is your favorite hobby or one of your favorite things?
I love reading, baking, running, and traveling.

What is your favorite food?
Ok. This is going to sound weird, but I just don’t love food. If I had to pick, I’d say peppermint ice cream or gluten free brownies. But there’s no food I could categorize as my favorite or something I love to eat. I know that’s weird.

What is your favorite Scripture or quote?
My favorite scripture is Romans 5:3-5: Not only so but we rejoice in our sufferings because suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us for God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit whom He has given us.

What do you believe makes Hill Country distinct?
We have such an incredible culture of respect, excellence, and intentionality among the faculty, students, and families. We really do know and love every student. I think our students know that even once they leave our classrooms, the teachers and faculty are still there to support them in life.

What do you love about teaching at Hill Country?
I love that it truly feels like a family. It is not just a Christ-centered school, but a community that cares for families through so many stages of life.
