Brief biography

I am originally from North Eastern Wisconsin. I attended the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire for my undergraduate work (Music/Mathematics) and then taught mathematics in Neenah, Wisconsin. I had a wonderful experience teaching high school mathematics and decided to pursue graduate work. In 2010, I completed a master's in mathematics at Illinois State University. I then went on to finish a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education in 2013. My dissertation research concerned the teaching and learning of trigonometry in the modern sciences.
