I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Northern Colorado with majors in Health, Physical Education, Recreation and English and graduate work in Health and Exercise Science. I am certified to teach grades K - 12. I started my teaching career at the secondary level where I taught English, Health and Physical Education. I also coached soccer and volleyball at both the elementary and secondary levels. Before coming to Shepardson, I worked for the Health, Exercise Science Department at Colorado State University. This is my 11th year as the Shepardson Physical Education teacher.
My family is originally from Hawaii. I grew up in Illinois and moved to Colorado to attend college where I met my husband, a Fort Collins native. We have 2 children who both attended Shepardson from kindergarten through 6th grade, graduated from Fort Collins High School and are University of Colorado and Texas alumni.
I enjoy traveling, exercising, Jazzercising, and spending time with my wonderful grandkids!
