Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Although I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia, my family and I moved every 2-3 years throughout my childhood. I graduated from LSU in with a BA in Communications, and I have worked in brand and communications roles for several technology and education companies focused on assessment, curriculum and services.
What brought you to Tutor.com?
Honestly, the thought of having over 3,100 tutors ready to help students any time of the day is amazing. With three kids of my own, I wanted to be part of a company that can affect not only the motivation and self-esteem of kids, but can help fill knowledge gaps to help them succeed in education and their community.
What are your favorite hobbies and interests?
As a mom of three kids, two dogs and a wife, I spend a lot of my time with my family exploring new places, watching baseball and SEC football. Although I dream of playing professional tennis, I make do with the occasional match with friends and family as often as possible. My favorite place is Denver, Colorado, but I look forward to the next adventure and enjoy experiencing new cultures and communities.
