Learning Guide

I am energized by our adventures together and honored to be part of the RSS Crew since our inaugural year in 2017.  


Mentors, professors, and educators have taught me that the deepest knowledge comes from exploring, interacting, and experiencing the world around us. Educational experiences have drawn me to locations all over the globe. I’ve trekked to Machu Picchu, summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, rafted the Grand Canyon, dove the reefs of Palau and the Galapagos,  hiked to visit Komodos in Indonesia, explored cathedrals and castles in Europe, and served on numerous mission trip projects. I’ve been immersed in history and local culture, amazed by geology and fragile ecosystems, and moved by the immense strength of the human spirit.


Renaissance students...we have explored, interacted, and experienced the world together the past few years!  Adventures in the classroom and many beyond...backpacking, canoeing, rafting, hiking, skiing, canyoneering, rock-climbing, and even exploring biodiversity in Costa Rica.  You have inspired me with your kindness, generosity, resilience, and courage.  You are creators.  You are innovators.  You are artists.  You are musicians.  You are actors.  You are athletes.  You are tinkerers.  You are mountain-climbers.  You are change-makers.  


I challenge you to continue to evolve into the best version of yourself.  I will do the same. Here's to many more adventures together!
