After a year as a chemical engineer and four years in radiopharmaceutical research, the Lord called me to this adventure called teaching. I have been teaching for over twelve years. It has been the hardest but the most amazing thing I’ve ever done in my life. My passion is knowing Jesus and making Him known in a world that is desperate for a savior. My greatest desire for each student is to know and love our God and Savior. I long for them to know how completely loved they are and to know the forgiveness, transformation, healing and freedom that are only possible through Christ. God is the Creator, and His image and fingerprint are seen throughout all of creation, including science and math.

My mother and father and their families are from Houston, but I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. When I’m not teaching, I love spending time with friends and family, doing anything outdoors, exercising, reading, and cooking. My favorite food to cook and eat is Mediterranean food!
