I am a born and raised Montanan, and have worked in education, both K-12 and higher ed, for the last 10 years. Professionally, what I enjoy most is fostering relationships and motivating students to recognize their personal strengths and academic potential. I love spontaneity and spending quality time with the people I love most –  I’ve learned that success, happiness, and wellbeing derive from balancing career aspects with time spent away from the office.



Random Things About Me

I love my basset hound Tucker, my “sassy bassy”, more than pretty much anyone in the world.

I am a paranormal junkie and fascinated by the dead, death, murder, mystery, notions of the afterlife, all the morbid things.

I am very accident-prone, but lack the cool stories to accompany my history of injuries.
