I grew up in metro Detroit; and while I've adopted the city of Chicago as home, I will always be a Michigander. In 2011, I received a BS from Eastern Michigan University with majors in mathematics and general science and a minor in economics. After that, I moved to Mount Pleasant and began working on a Ph.D. in Mathematics with a concentration in the teaching of college mathematics at Central Michigan University. I successfully defended my dissertation in September 2017. During the 2017-18 academic year, I worked as an Accelerate mathematics instructor at the South Carolina Governor's School for Science & Mathematics; however, I was eager to return to the Midwest and am now currently employed by the Illinois Mathematics & Science Academy in Aurora, IL.
