Getting hired at Mountain Vista. It was always my dream to teach choir there after graduating from MVHS.

Share a positive memory from high school that sticks out to you.
Playing basketball always sticks out to me. I was really involved in basketball for all four years and had a great time. In my senior year spring semester, I also decided to go out for tennis with another basketball teammate. Neither of us had ever played before but it was just so fun to try something new!

What was one unique thing you learned about yourself during high school? How did your teachers and school support you?
My choir teachers Maja Buck and Schehera McKasson helped me realize my potential as a future leader and teacher. They inspired me greatly to be who I am today and I’m so thankful to them both!

What advice would you give your 15-year-old self?
Focus on your friendships and just be present in the moment!

What skill (professional or personal) are you trying to master?
Currently, I’m trying to master the art of crocheting 🧶.

What are your future plans?
I’m expecting my first child in August, and we are so excited about a future with kids. I’m also planning to continue to teach at Vista for as long as I can!
