A Little Bit About Me...

    I graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Mathematics (Applied Discrete option) and a minor in Computer Science in 2008, then graduated again from Virginia Tech with an M.S. in Mathematics in 2009. Since then, I've been teaching in the VT math department! Aside from teaching, I am a part of a programming team for online coursework through the Math Emporium, I evaluate math courses at other schools for VT transfer credit, and run the departmental advising sessions for incoming math majors during summer orientation. A few years ago, I developed our department's First Year Experience course, "Discovering Mathematics", which I am very excited to teach again this year. Additionally, our department now has a freshman/sophomore advising team, which I'm proud to co-chair.

    Outside of my work life, I enjoy hula hooping, cross-stitching, and upcycling furniture. Of course, I also love spending time with my robot-making drone-flying husband, Jesse, (yes, our names are Jess and Jesse) and our sweet dog, Callie.
