Biography:

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.  In fact, I recently 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 second 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.
