Hello! I’ve been teaching music since 1994 and it’s been my honor to be Carson’s music teacher since 2019. I graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Music and received a Masters in Educational Leadership from Regis University. I also hold a certificate in Cultural and Linguistically Diverse Education.
I’ve enjoyed playing keyboard, singing, and composing music in many local bands in the Denver area. I love having fun with my family and friends, and learning new things.
I grew up in Denver and attended Denver Public Schools as a student, graduating from Thomas Jefferson High School. I’ve taught in Denver Public Schools for 21 years and worked in various areas, as a second grade teacher, intervention specialist, Gt coordinator and Visual Arts teacher. This is my 6th year at Carson as a Visual Arts teacher and I really enjoy working with the students and families in this community. I earned my B. A. at Knox College and Masters in Education through University of Phoenix. I enjoy reading, traveling, cooking, playing games and creating artwork with my son and husband during my free time.
