I currently work in higher education at the University of Colorado Denver, and previously worked at the University of Notre Dame as a Web Content Editor. Prior to Notre Dame, I worked for newspapers for about 14 years as a reporter, editor, and managing editor.

When I lived in Iowa City, I worked on a contract basis with Pearson, where I graded ACT essays, so I am familiar with the rubric needed to garner high marks.

I am a graduate of the University of Iowa, with a degree in journalism and mass communications. In elementary school, junior high, and high school, I was in all honors classes. In high school, I took AP (advanced placement) classes in U.S. History and Calculus, worked as a writing center tutor, and also played football and baseball.

My mother was a teacher (she's now retired), and it's a profession that I considered but did not pursue. I think I have a knack for teaching and tutoring.

I am married with a 2-year-old daughter and also two stepsons, who are 12 and 8.
