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 before becoming an Assistant Principal. I was an AP for seven years, and became Prinicipal at Carson in 2020.

Both of my children are DPS students. My daughter Kai is a senior and my son Jace is a sophmore as third generation students at South.  

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