I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii until the age of five when my parents decided to move my two older sisters and me to Sandy, Utah after my father received a job opportunity. Growing up in Utah was a wonderful experience; however, I, unfortunately, did not have the opportunity to attend a Catholic School as there were very few in the area that I lived. Therefore, because of the importance of my faith, I made the decision to apply to Catholic Colleges and Universities. I was fortunate to attend Fairfield University where I received both my Bachelor's and Master’s degrees. For the past two years, I have taught third grade at The Academy. I am excited to begin this new journey in first grade and look forward to creating a classroom that is full of faith, curiosity, creativity, and fun!
