Annie grew up in Ohio and attended college at The Ohio State University where her love for chemistry and scientific research blossomed. This led her to continue her education in graduate school at The Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia where she performed computational chemical physics research. During both her undergraduate and graduate education, Annie was a teaching assistant for many courses, where she was able to explore her passion for teaching.
Before Verde Valley School, Annie worked at Atlanta Girls’ School where she taught AP Physics 1 & 2, Honors Physics, and Biology, as well as coached the Varsity Girls’ Soccer Team. Annie taught all Physics at Woodward Academy as well as coached their Varsity Girls’ Soccer Team. Annie also coached many competitive soccer teams for Atlanta Area Soccer Clubs. It was through these experiences that Annie was able to blend her excitement for exploring math and science, her love for soccer, and her desire to help students explore their passions in life.
When Annie is not teaching she loves to spend her time drumming, hiking, doing yoga, running with her dogs, stargazing, and getting to know the amazing VVS community.
