I am a proud DPS graduate from South High School. I earned my Undergraduate Degree from the University of Northern Colorado and my Master’s Degree, Educational Specialist Degree and Principal License from the University of Colorado at Denver. I began teaching in Mapleton Public Schools in 2000, then came back to DPS and taught for eleven more years. Both of my children are DPS students. My daughter Kai is a sophomore and third generation student at South, and son Jace is an eighth grader in the Highly Gifted and Talented Magnet Program at Morey.
When I’m not at school, I enjoy being adventurous in the Colorado wilderness. I love camping, skiing, hiking, gardening and biking with my husband and children. When not socially distancing, I spend a lot of time cheering on my kids as they participate in a multitude of sports. Photography is another passion. When it is not so warm outside, I love reading, cheering on the Broncos, playing board and card games with my family and cuddling my two cats, Pocket and Crush, and puppy Pogo!

Dean of Instruction
I was born and raised in Colorado; I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from Colorado State University and my Master’s of Education & Human Development in Teaching in Diverse Contexts from the University of Colorado – Denver. I am currently enrolled in the Education & Leadership Policy Studies program through the University of Denver to attain my licensure to become a principal in the future!
I love teaching children how to love learning and to pursue their passions. I am honored to have been teaching at Carson for 5 years, two of which I have also had the opportunity to lead and coach teachers in planning and instruction. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, baking, and playing video games with my wife, Marissa. We have one dog, Ivy, and one cat, Reesey!
