Hello!

From an early age, I've been driven by an insatiable curiosity and a desire to share knowledge with others. My journey in the education field began in 2005 when I earned my Bachelor's degree in Religion and Theology. Fresh out of college, I embarked on an exciting adventure as an outdoor education instructor, teaching science-based curricula to 5th-8th graders along the West Coast.

 

In 2008, I returned to my beloved home state of Alaska and transitioned into the youth development field, focusing on social-emotional learning for K-6 students and their after-school program staff. Fueled by my passion for education, I completed a second Bachelor's degree in K-8 education in 2012.

While continuing my work in youth development, I eventually found myself drawn to the realm of early childhood education. In 2022, I seized an incredible opportunity and landed my first role as an Instructional Designer in the healthcare sector. I now have the privilege of creating online learning experiences for adults serving as physical, behavioral, and dental health aides in rural Alaskan communities.

Driven by a thirst for knowledge, I returned to academia in 2023, pursuing a Master's in Instructional Design and Technology, as well as a Master's in Adult Education and Training from the American College of Education. I proudly completed both programs in June 2024.

Beyond my professional endeavors, I wear many hats – Aunt, Mentor, Sister, Friend, Landlord, Foster Mom (to dogs), Dog Mom (to a couple of "foster fails"), Volunteer Patient for medical training programs, cook, gardener, Children's Ministry Curriculum Director, CPR/First Aid/BLS/Lifeguarding Instructor, a traumatic brain injury survivor and advocate, Alaska Native artist, and an avid Settlers of Catan enthusiast, among others.

I embrace every opportunity for growth and learning, and I'm always eager to connect with like-minded individuals. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or simply want to engage in a stimulating discussion about the world of education and beyond.
