Hello! This is my first year teaching and I am so excited to be working at DMMS. I am currently teaching 8th grade Principles of Science. Before I decided to become a teacher, I worked as a microbiologist for three years. Directly after college, I spent time working in the Outer Banks researching bottlenose dolphins and sea turtles. I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Virginia's College at Wise in Biology and graduate degree at James Madison University in Secondary Education.
In my free time, I love spending time with my dog Tiger, who is a 185 pound Neapolitan Mastiff. My hobbies include hiking, kayaking, and running. Stop by and say hello!
