I love working with teenagers and I always have! The small group setting of the WH program allows me to get to know my students really well and watch them grow and change throughout their high school career.

My favorite part of working at WH is the community! I love when we get time in our schedule to cook together, play board games, watch movies and do community service projects together.

Fun Fact: I speak fluent Portuguese

When I get down time I love to take my pup Oli on hikes, I also do yoga and love reading, especially if it's on a beach!
