    Classes taught: AP Physics 1, Pre-AP Biology

    This is my first year teaching at Carnegie Vanguard High School.  I started teaching at Waltrip High School in the 2017-2018 school year.  Before teaching, I had a long career as an Environmental Engineer, mainly consulting on soil and groundwater assessments, and I still maintain my Texas Professional Engineering license. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and my Masters in the same from Clemson University.  I enjoy jigsaw puzzles and spending time with my family, especially my husband, our two children, and our dog.  I also try to maintain my health and fitness through strength training and walking.

    I look forward to fostering a love and appreciation for science and critical thinking in my students here at CVHS.
