“I love being a student at Trinity because of the wonderful faculty members. Each individual and unique class I take is paired with an equally individual and unique teacher. The passion they have for their subjects influences me every day. They inspire me to work harder and show me the beauty in all areas of study. Their enthusiasm for learning is contagious, and I am grateful for every single one of them!”Trinity Student

Where are you from?
I enjoy cooking, baking, violin, and occasionally pickleball! I also enjoy Latin, Ovid, theology (Augustine, Aquinas, John Paul II, Benedict XVI), Greek philosophy, the 7 Liberal Arts (Trivium and Quadrivium), the Renaissance, and Flannery O’Connor.
How did you first learn about Trinity School at River Ridge?
I went to Hillsdale with several Trinity graduates.
What do you love most about teaching at Trinity?
I love that I get to interact with so many people and that my day never looks the same as the one before.
Describe a moment of significant intellectual awakening in your life.
In 7th grade, we read Howard Pyle’s Adventures of Robin Hood. We “discussed” (argued) whether or not he was a hero for 6 years afterward. It was a moment of awakening for me to the moral complexity of the law and its role in human life. (For the record, I definitely think he is a hero).
