I joined the BDS Family because…the mission of BDS aligns with my core beliefs, and I will be able to utilize my entire skill set and interests.

Fun fact about me: I enjoy music and played the piano for 10 years.

Best/worst part of distance learning: I started the position in the middle of a pandemic, so I have been unable to meet our students.
