Education: Colorado State  University: Health and Exercise Science, Fort Collins CO

Masters in Education: Specializing in Best Practices, National University, San Diego CA


Background: After graduating from Colorado State University in 2007, I received a great offer to work in the fitness industry and quickly moved to sunny San Diego.  After helping out with a sports camp at a local San Diego High School, volunteering at the YMCA, and becoming a role model to an eight year old, I quickly realized my passion in life.   After going back to school and receiving my masters, I decided to move back to Colorado to be closer to family and start a career in education here in Colorado.   I worked for two years as a substitute teacher as well as in the BASE program at Clear Sky Elementary in Castle Rock before coming to Sand Creek. 


Interests: I am a huge sports fan (my mom thinks that I was born with a ball in my hand) as I have a love for all sports and physical activities.  I recently got into running and ran my first marathon in June, I don’t know if my knees have recovered yet.  In my free time I love to pretend that I’m a professional golfer.  I enjoy watching movies, especially if it’s a comedy staring Vince Vaughn, Will Farrell, or Nick Swardson.  Basset Hounds are my favorite and I hope to get my own some day, I'll name him Bernard. I’m a huge sucker for gummy bears, Oreos with milk, and orange chicken!
