From a rural childhood in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State and an urban adolescence in Seattle, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I’ve taught in the multicultural worlds of both Seattle Public Schools and Black Forest Academy in southwestern Germany, both experiences that cemented a lifelong love for students, learning and literature.
After eight years living overseas, my family has recently moved back to the Pacific Northwest of my childhood. While being the mom of one—soon to be two!—little girls fills my days lately, I also have a corner of time (and a good deal of passion) for hikes in the mountains, interesting books and learning to bake the perfect loaf of sourdough bread.
I’m a wife, a mother and a writer, learning to see God everywhere and seeking to pursue a life of grace and wisdom.
