Biography:

"Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible." -Dalai Lama
I have lived in Colorado since 1987, moving from St. Louis, MO. I began my teaching career in BVSD in 1993, and then moved to New Delhi, India in 2000, where my husband and I taught for four years. My high school aged son, my husband, and I love to spend time doing anything outdoors. Colorado is the perfect place for us!

Biography:

"The point of a journey is not to arrive, the point of departure is not to return."
It has been a pleasure teaching at this amazing school for eight years-- I'm so looking forward to the next 8! I'm a Colorado native and a graduate of Fairview High School and Regis University. After graduating High School, I spent 5 years in the Air Force followed by nearly 2 decades in the service industry. I joined the teaching profession in 2010 and haven't looked back since. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy skiing with my wife Kate and my two sons, Grant and Max (both Fireside alum). I'm also a music and movie fanatic.
