I studied at WSU, NCSU and CSU in the Departments of Education and Exercise & Sports Science. I began working at Shepardson Elementary in 1996 as a Kindergarten Paraprofessional. I started working at B.A.S.E. Camp (before and after school enrichment program) at Shepardson in 2008..
I grew up near Sugarloaf Mountain west of Boulder and graduated from Nederland High. I have two sisters and three brothers. Besides Colorado, I have lived in Washington State, North Carolina and Virginia. I am blessed with three adult sons who all attended Shepardson.
I enjoy camping, hiking, and playing volleyball. Spending time with my family is very important to me.
