I am a former educator, thrilled to be a part of the Sports Journalism M.A. program at Arizona State University.

Formerly, I taught elementary school and worked as a trainer for a textbook company. 

I have always enjoyed sports and started to recognize that watching, talking, and reading about sports brought me the most joy. I recognized that I wanted my whole world to be sports, and left my career in education. My experience at Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication has exceeded every one of my expectations. I thoroughly enjoy learning from faculty and students alike.

I graduated in 2011 from The Ohio State University with a B.A. in Psychology and 2012 from the University of Southern California with an M.A. in Teaching. I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me!
