I graduated from Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Spanish. My classroom experience began as a parent volunteer which I enjoyed so much I joined PSD in 2012 as an Early Childhood family mentor for Head Start families. From there I became an instructional para at Shepardson and eventually assisted with literacy intervention last year for all grade levels. This will be my 6th school year at Shepardson and my first as a classroom teacher!
I am a native of California but grew up in Austin, Texas. I have also lived in Virginia and North Carolina before moving to Fort Collins in 2008. My family includes my husband, two children (10 & 13), two cats and one very large Alaskan Malamute. We love life in Colorado and are proud to call Fort Collins home. It is such a great place to raise a family!
My priority is my family so I enjoy spending as much of my time with them as I can. We love to travel, explore the outdoors, and support each kiddo in their sports and various activities. In my free time, I enjoy listening to live music, traveling, reading, exercising (all types) and being outside as much as possible.
