Teaching Credentials and Experience:

Courses: PEMA 116—Women's Self-Defense
My first self-defense class as a college freshman was a profoundly empowering experience, and it inspired me to teach and pass that positive impact on to others. I am honored to be part of the women's self-defense team at UO and to teach confidence-building strategies for awareness and assertiveness to self-identified women of all ages and backgrounds.
I also work as a writer and artist, and I’m a lifelong nerd who loves old dusty books, sci-fi movies, and outdoor adventures with my rascally dog.
