I grew up in Cleveland, OH, and moved to Colorado to attend CSU. I earned my degree in Natural Resources, Recreation and Tourism and my first years in education were leading outdoor programs on the environment. I later earned my teaching certificate from Humboldt State University. This is my 14th year teaching and my 7th year at Carson. I feel so grateful to be part of this community. I am currently completing a program to become a certified Mindfulness instructor. I enjoy incorporating mindful techniques into our daily classroom activities and hope to inspire students to use these skills in their daily lives.
When I am not at Carson, I enjoy spending time with my two kiddos, Olivia (14) and Owen (12). We love to read, play games, go for hikes in the mountains and we’ve recently started skiing! We are so lucky to live in beautiful Colorado!
