About Me________________________________________________________________

After several years in the classroom, I have sparked an interest in school policy and logistics.  I know first-hand how strong leadership and educational philosophy can influence the classroom, school, and all schools across a district.  I want to join a human resources team focused on helping schools achieve their greatest potential.

Personally, I enjoy running, photography, and college sports.  My family, friends, and Michigan State University are all very important to me.  I plan to run a marathon within the year.
