Representing: Lake City High School
Representing: Coeur d'Alene High School I will admit-I do not like pina coladas or getting caught in the rain...BUT I do love reading, hanging out with friends, and getting involved with my community! I enjoy being a part of sports teams, clubs, and committees because they help me stay involved and help those around me.
I started with Growing the STEM because I love math and the values the program stands for!
I’m excited to keep you updated on our growing the stem social media platforms.
