Albuquerque, NM

Reader & Writer


I'm a high school English teacher who loves to spend time with my fiance, camping in the wilderness, and playing pokemon. Growing up in a military family, I've traveled the world from a young age and have learned to appreciate different cultures and people.

I love opening the minds of teenagers to the possibilities that surround them, letting them know they can do anything they want to with a little hard work and some guidance, loving them for who they are and not where they come from.

I'm a little obsessed with Disney movies (and don't have a favorite because they're all so great!) and I can definitely answer any Disney question you may have.

I sing no matter where I am, and I love bringing joy to those around me. I've been writing ever since I can remember. It's who I am.

Favorite Books

Harry Potter (duh), Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers (pivotal for me in a really hard time in my life), Tiger's Curse Series by Colleen Houck (brilliantly written!), and The Host by Stephanie Meyer (soooooo much better than Twilight).

Favorite Quotes

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fall again. Fail better." -Samuel Beckett
