I am a Sooner girl born and raised in Oklahoma. I graduated from Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and a Masters of Education in teaching. While I was a student, I loved studying abroad and traveling. I studied in Guadalajara, Mexico and Viña del Mar, Chile. When I graduated, I taught English in the Dominican Republic. I have been an instructor at Kansas State University since January 2013, and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Student Affairs in Higher Education. I love being a Manhattan resident and an instructor at KSU. My favorite part is working with international students every day.
