I love engineering. I love everything about it - the design, the challenge, the daily impact it has on EVERYONE.

I became a teacher in 2013 after 6+ years as a civil project engineer, and quickly discovered my passion for teaching high school and preparing students to excel in collegiate engineering. 

I joined Thompson High School in 2019 as Director of the Engineering Academy. I am excited to use my engineering experience from industry and teaching high school to design Thompson's Engineering Academy - an Academy designed to produce students who stand-out when they set foot on campus, and who are equipped to pursue opportunity with confidence.
