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 junior and my son Jace is a freshman as third generation students at South.  We also have an exchange student living with us this year from Madrid, Spain. Daniela is a sophomore at South this year!

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 and Avs, playing board and card games with my family and cuddling my two cats, Pocket and Crush, and dog, Pogo!
