I received my first degree (B.A.) in mathematics at UC Berkeley, where I fell in love with the beauty and logic of math. Later I went on to complete a master's degree in mathematics at Portland State University, where I was teaching Pre-Calculus as well as a fun class called 'Excursions in Mathematics.' The Excursions class was especially meant for liberal arts students who struggled with traditional math classes but still needed to fulfill a math requirement to graduate.

After I finished my master's degree I moved to Finland to do a Ph.D. in mathematics. I was always fascinated with Scandinavia and Nordic culture, so I decided to go there to study. I lived in Finland for 5 years and completed my doctorate in a field called Geometric Function Theory. Although it wasn't required for my studies, I learned the Finnish language while I was there. Finland is a wonderful country, and I will always cherish my time spent and the people I met there.

I moved back to the USA after finishing my PhD, and I was hired as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Hawaii Department of Mathematics. My position included both teaching and research responsibilities. I was teaching all levels of mathematics, including single- and multi-variable calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, advanced undergraduate analysis as well as graduate courses.

While I love math and teaching, I found that working working full-time at a university is not for me. The heavy teaching loads and constant pressure to publish research results left me run down and exhausted, and that's not how I want to live and work. I want to enjoy teaching and working on research while also having time to be a person and enjoy life. I recently moved to pursue other interests, while I continue to teach mathematics and work on research in my own time.
