Meet Our Staff
Hi, I started at the English Language Institute at Missouri State in 1998. I have lived and taught English in South Korea and Taiwan. While I was in Taiwan, I studied Mandarin Chinese. In my free time, I enjoy reading, canoeing, hiking, and movies.
I started at the English Language Institute in 2012. I graduated from Missouri State in 2012 with a BA in Intercultural Communication and Diversity. I love working with students! I speak English and Spanish, but I would like to learn Japanese.
I began teaching at the English Language Institute in 2013. I hold my MA in English - TESOL and I enjoy researching reading skills in SLA students. I love helping students experience language and culture in the United States.
