As my career evolved with experiences encompassing elementary education and business, I continually found innovative ways to engage my students and colleagues in learning. Passionate about the use and integration of technology, I continued to strive to improve my understanding of its purpose in the educational realm. It was clear to me that the intentional and appropriate use of technology would serve to engage students in developing their own passion for learning. Striving to make sense of the quickly evolving technology and its relation to learning, I set out to engage in advancing my own education.

In an effort to reach beyond my school community, I serve as a member of the LEGO Education Advisory Panel (LEAP) and as a Discovery Education Network STAR Educator. I am grateful for the influence that Webster University faculty has had on my career, not only influencing my knowledge and use of technology, but also the emphasis on creativity, innovation, and collaboration.
