I am originally from Minnesota, but I moved to Arizona as a teenager. I graduated with a degree in Business Management from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Before becoming a math teacher, I spent 6 years in the residential construction business. This experience has enabled me to integrate the mathematics learned in the classroom, like geometric shapes and financial calculations, with real world applications. I completed Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University course so I can help students and adults think critically and make wise financial decisions. This is my seventh year at LFPA and I am a Highly Qualified Math Teacher. In the classroom I strive to develop lifelong learners with a dedicated personal integrity and strong work ethic.
On my free time, I enjoy to playing my guitar, hunting, hiking, fishing, skiing, wakeboarding, exercising, traveling, and working on carpentry/real estate projects.
