Although I am a California native, I spent much of my life here in Colorado. I graduated from Regis University here in Denver, Colorado, and received my Reading Interventionist Certificate from Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado. I am currently taking courses at Adams State towards my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. When I’m not teaching or taking classes I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My family consists of my husband, (also a teacher) and our two dogs, Meeko and Mojo. We enjoy boating, camping, backpacking, hiking, disc golf and dancing.
