Ryan is originally from Michigan and attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids. He graduated with a Biology major & teaching minor while playing college lacrosse and studying abroad in India, Hawaii and northern Michigan. He taught in North Carolina for 9 years and also had the honor of coaching lacrosse, soccer, and leading clubs.
Ryan’s passion for teaching started early while tutoring others in grade school and has blossomed into a career to help students find their path through school and life. He believes when children feel they have a successful career path they become self-motivated and driven. During his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and sons, cooking, doing Crossfit, and woodworking. He is currently going back to school pursuing a Master’s in Secondary Chemistry Education.
