BS Special Education and Rehabilitation, Severe Disabilities
I grew up in the Salt Lake Valley with my mom, dad, older brother, and various pets. I obtained my B.S. in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Utah with the intention of being a child therapist. After gaining some real world experience working as a Social Worker for the Division of Child and Family Services, as well as volunteering with children of all ages in various settings, I decided I wanted to change my career path. I went back to school at Utah State University to get my teaching degree in Special Education. I have been teaching elementary students with severe disabilities since 2013 and I absolutely love it! Besides teaching, I also love to hike, train my two dogs (Layla and Maya), listen to music, read, and enjoy the great outdoors every chance I get.
