Teaching and mentoring experiential learning through research, instruction, and service has provided unique opportunities and invaluable academic growth for myself and my students. Our passions are deepened and our horizons are expanded.

Cal Lutheran gave me a lot of valuable opportunities to be involved within the Mathematics department, such as being a tutor, researcher, and departmental assistant. Influential courses that I took in this program, like Real Analysis, solidified my decision to pursue a PhD in Pure Mathematics.

In order to discover their purpose, students need to be given an opportunity to learn about what their community and their world need, in addition to learning about what their personal strengths and passions are. I try to give them a safe place in my work with them to talk about both.
