I graduated from Penn State in 2011 (B.A. in English Lit), then served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Republic of Armenia for two years, where I worked as a teacher trainer of English in a tiny Southern village. After returning from Peace Corps service, I taught English in Mérida, Spain for five months. While living overseas, I traveled as much as possible and learned to speak both Eastern Armenian and Spanish fluently.

In 2015 I got my M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction through the PDS partnership with Penn State at State High. I taught Advanced English 11 during that year of student-teaching. I also have experience teaching ESL and coaching swimming & lacrosse.

I am a certified meditation teacher and teach Yoga as well through TriYoga centre county. I value mindfulness both inside and outside the classroom, and I love teaching my students ways to more effectively cope with stress. When I am not teaching, I also love to be outdoors, read, and write. I love words. I also enjoy psychology, philosophy, and environmental science. I have a rescued dog named Mia from Armenia who owns a puppy passport and has flown with me over the Atlantic to be here! She is three years old.
