Level 9 - Getting started, Member since Jul 17, 2016
I grew up in Meridian, Idaho having spent my youth as a dedicated Girl Scout and student. I graduated from University of Idaho (in Moscow, Idaho) with Biological Systems Engineering and Mathematics Degrees. From UI I went to the University of California, Davis (near Sacramento) to complete a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics. My research focused on computational mathematical biology and numerical analysis.

From Davis I made my way to San Francisco State University as a Program Director of Outreach and Student Success. In this position I was the Director of the San Francisco Math Circle, the Co-Director of the SFSU (CM)^2 NSF GK12 program, and the Co-Director of the Bay Area Circle for Teachers. In addition I had the opportunity to be involved with Math Circles, Bridge to Engineering Pathways (B2E), Adventures in Precalculus! and various professional development efforts.

In 2015 I began working at Central Washington University as a tenure track assistant professor. My current interests include supporting my students' mathematical exploration, supporting the growth of Math Circles, and a broader national research on the impact of Math Circles.
