I have called Fort Collins home for many years now. After a few years in the Army, stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, my husband of 20 + years and I spontaneously decided to give Colorado a try. This town suits me and my family perfectly because we love to play outside! My favorite things are my family, riding my bike, books and reading, camping, hiking, playing with our dog, Mille Keen, and school! Since coming to FoCo in 2002, I earned my BS degree in Nutrition from CSU and started a family. I feel fortunate to have two children a son, age 12, and a daughter, age 10. Being a parent has been an amazing journey so far. As a paraprofessional, I hope to share my love for life with the kids at Shepardson! Flexibility and a positive outlook allow me to support our classroom teachers and our students while they learn and grow. I enjoy getting to know the kiddos and sharing experiences with them. I am excited to learn what your child loves and to share my zest for life and learning with them.
