Welcome to our Trinity family! If you had to describe your first weeks here in only three words, what would they be?

Enthusiastic, Nurturing, Accepting

Now that you’re officially a professional educator, looking back to when you were a student, did you ever think this would be what you’d be doing at your age?

I knew I was going to be a teacher when I was in fourth grade and my father built me a clubhouse, which I turned into a schoolhouse and would make the neighborhood kids that were younger than me do schoolwork in the summer.

Are you originally from Tampa, or did you move here from somewhere else? If so, from where and how long ago?

I moved to Tampa from Milford, Connecticut in 2012 after graduating from high school in my hometown and came here to study at The University of Tampa.

If you were given a moments notice to take a week off and travel anywhere in the world you’d like without worrying about the cost, where would you go and what would you do?

I would go see Australia and explore the continent with all its amazing destinations.

To you, what is the most rewarding part of your job as an educator?

I know I have made a difference when a student tells me they appreciate me or that I have helped them learn something that they have struggled with and they finally get that “ah-ha” moment. Seeing that light smart within a child makes me know that I am making a difference not only academically, but also mentally and emotionally.

What is your favorite:

  • Movie? Over the Hedge
  • Book? The Help
  • Musical Artist? Florence Welch
  • Candy? Reeses
  • Restaurant? Carrabba’s
