Where do you call home?
I'm a Missionary Kid and grew up in Europe but I claim Richmond, VA, and Savigny-sur-Orge, France

How long have you been in education support?
Over a year

What is your favorite part about your job?
I am able to see the final products go live on social media or on the website and I'm proud of knowing that I had a part to play in it. Everything that I do is seen by the community which makes even the smallest things matter so much more.

What is your favorite thing about USJ?
My co-workers, faculty, and staff alike.  They are all funny, smart, kind, caring, and really good at their jobs. And the kids aren't bad either.

What is a fun fact about yourself?
For every division of education, I was in a different country. I was in France for Elementary School, Germany for Middle School, US and Czech Republic for High School.
