I received my PhD in Mathematics at Washington State University in April 2013. Prior to finishing my PhD, I took 6 years off from graduate school. During that time I worked at Walla Walla Community College as the Director of Instructional Support and as an adjunct Math Instructor. I also spent one year teaching High School in a small town called Helix Oregon. I even spent a semester at the University of Miami in Florida (which was so not my favorite place to live). I received my Master's Degree in Mathematics from Kansas State University in 2000 and I received my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics (with a Physics minor) from Eastern Oregon University in 1998.

I love the outdoors. One day, I want to go backpacking in the wild for at least a month. That would be my dream vacation. I also love sports: running, soccer, volleyball, basketball,.. but I'm not good at any. I also crochet, but just for fun. To the right is a picture of the Wallowa Mountains in Oregon where I would love to spend my dream vacation.
