This is my first year teaching at Independence Academy and I couldn't be more thrilled to be part of such a wonderful school! I graduated from Colorado Mesa University in 2015 with a B.S. in Biological Sciences, mainly focusing on different organisms we share the planet with. My goal is to educate students in wilderness awareness, respecting and protecting the environment, and to give them tools to deal with the stress that life inevitably throws our way as humans. My door is always open!
