I have also been a softball coach at D’Evelyn High School since 1995. Coaching gives me the opportunity to work with both elementary and high school students.

I am a Colorado Native, born and raised right here in Lakewood. I have spent my whole life as a part of Jeffco, either as a student, or teaching. I even graduated from MSU in Denver. This year is my 6th year working in the district, but my very first year as a STEM teacher! I am so excited because I am a big nerd and I get to share that passion with the whole school! I love all things space, natural science, computer engineering, programming, and I especially love to learn new things every day! I enjoy working with my hands and spend most of my free time either crafting or playing video games with my husband, if I can keep my two cats from "helping". When I can, I love to travel, especially to other countries. I love to see how other people live and try new things while I'm there. I've been to 10 different countries so far but I hope to bump that number up a little soon.
