I grew up in Illinois and moved to Kentucky in High School. I attended Berea College where I got an middle school education degree and began teaching in Lexington, KY. I spent 6 years teaching middle school math and science and got a master's degree in English as a Second Language. I love learning, reading, and traveling. I fell in love with Sonlight when I came on a short term mission trip with Southland Christian Church. I have always wanted to teach abroad but Sonlight had the added bonus of getting to teach about Jesus.
