**About
me**

2009-2010 will be my third year at UGA in the PhD Mathematics
Program. I am interested in low-dimensional topology and knot
theory. Before attending UGA, I attended the University of
Oregon where I received my BA and MS in Mathematics. I also
taught at Piedmont College for a year.

I am from North Bend, Oregon, which is a small coastal town. For
my junior year of high school, I spent the year abroad in Northern
Italy. I later returned in college for another semester.
These experiences greatly influenced me; I actually wanted to be
a Romance Language major in college! But, I couldn't deny my
interest and fascination in math. So, I switched over to the math
program at UO during my sophomore year and the rest is history!
