Why USD?

USD is a strong university committed to a quality education for its students. As a military spouse who moved every 2-3 years, the options for quality online education was difficult, if not impossible, to find. Supporting USD’s efforts to provide a quality online MEd program for those who may not be able to attend in person is vital to aid those who are passionate about the education of our children no matter where they reside.

Advice for Future Students?

Always remember what drew you to education. Your desire to provide a quality education to our children will provide support for you when challenges arise.

Anything else about yourself?

As a military spouse and mom, we have moved throughout the U.S. and Europe, which gave me the opportunity to see and experience first-hand the challenges and strengths of highly mobile students, particularly military-connected children. I have taught and worked at every grade level throughout the U.S. and Europe in public, private, international, and DoDEA schools, so I have a wide breadth of experience I hope to share with my students. I truly believe there is nothing more important to our communities and our nation than providing the best education possible for our children.
