I’m a graduate of the University of Houston, with a BS in Biology and a concentration in Psychology. I have five years of tutoring experience in speech and debate, as well as in Sciences and English. Throughout high school and college, I competed nationally in speech and debate events including Lincoln-Douglas debate, Public Forum debate, Extemporaneous speaking, Impromptu speaking and Original Oratory. I was nationally ranked and finished 2nd in the Texas State championships in high school.
Through the last few years I have been coaching and mentoring students in public speaking and the aforementioned specific speech & debate events, helping them find their voice and hone their arguments. I believe that these activities can make a lasting and profound difference in a young person’s life.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my dog, writing, and running, and am an avid sports fan – go Astros!
