Director of Academics

B.A., University of Michigan – Political Science & Sociology
M.A., University of Michigan – Educational Studies
M.A., Central Michigan University – Educational Leadership

I have been a member of the FlexTech team since day one in 2011. In the years since, I have been an advisor for every grade level, and have taught US History, Civics, Economics, and Sociology. Currently, I serve as the Director of Academics for FlexTech. I am excited to continue to pursue the reasons I entered education in the first place: to help students create a space where they can feel known and can grow into successful adults. I love that, at FlexTech, we provide a lot of different options for students to figure out what their next steps are, and that every student has an advisor to help support them as they pursue their goals. I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, and earned both my bachelors and first masters degrees from the best university in the country, The University of Michigan. My husband, Josh, and I currently live in Ann Arbor with our energetic Jack Russell-Beagle mix, Otto. We enjoy water sports, Michigan football, snow skiing, traveling, and spending time with our friends & family. I also enjoy working outside of school as an event coordinator, baker, and budding photographer.
