Why are you passionate about working at NIET?

As a proud product of Texas public schools, I had the good fortune to learn from numerous high-quality educators. It is so inspiring to be a part of an organization that works to ensure that every student has the same access to effective teachers I had in the K-12 system.

What was your favorite subject in school and why?

My favorite subject in school was history. Stories of building nations, people overcoming insurmountable odds and world-changing innovation ... what more could you want!

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time I can usually be found cheering on the Washington Nationals, reading, baking, traveling or exploring D.C. in search of basset hounds to befriend.
