What do you enjoy most about working at Nevada State High School (NSHS)? Graduation! I love seeing the students walk across the stage.

How do you like to spend your free time? Constantly singing! If I’m not singing, I’m probably reading, binge-watching Netflix and Hallmark movies, attending sorority functions, and hanging out with family and friends.

What is your favorite place in the world? When I think of my favorite places, the only reasons they are my favorite is because of the people I’m with. I also love to go places where there’s water. Give me a beach or lake and a group of awesome people, and I’m there!

What is the last book you read? Currently reading The Coddling of the American Mind

Which authors or books have influenced you the most? I’m an avid Harry Potter fan and I love the metaphors that are present all throughout the series.

Do you have any secret talents? My Harry Potter trivia is pretty great! Quick: Who took over the Gryffindor Quidditch team after Oliver Wood?

What do you hope students will come away with after attending NSHS? I hope that students will take advantage of all the opportunities that NSHS provides and gain the knowledge and resources they need to be successful in their future endeavors.
