Values: This year I am focusing on being compassionate! I know that when I am embracing others people’s differences, being empathetic, and showing care and concern, I am at my best.
Bio: I was born and raised in Colorado, and I can’t imagine calling any other place home. After going to college for degrees in Biology and Environmental Science, I taught middle school and high school mathematics and sciences for 8 years. I made a slight career change by returning to school for a degree in school psychology. In this role, I have worked in DPS middle schools and high schools, but last year made the change to work with elementary school age students, where I now find joy in my work every day.
Hobbies: Many of my hobbies revolved around spending time with my daughter. Now that she has gone off to college, I have to entertain myself by reading, crossword puzzling, trail running, ski mountaineering, climbing, and cycling.
