Why TSAS? I knew from the first moments of walking into TSAS that this is a special place. I was drawn to the acceptance of individuality while cultivating an environment allowing students and staff to flourish. I had heard of TSAS’s reputation for being a magnificent place for all who are a part of it, and really wanted an opportunity to join. Since joining, TSAS has lived up to its reputation and I feel lucky to be a part of such a wonderful family.

Interesting Facts: I spent my kindergarten and 5th grade year in German public schools and can speak German fluently. My main hobbies are hiking, camping, gardening, and cooking. I also enjoy Kayaking, motorcycles, fishing, and horseback riding. When I retire, I hope to open an animal sanctuary. My only broken bone has been my cheek when I was smacked by a horse hoof causing 3 breaks and 4 cracks across my cheekbone.
