About Me

Westmont College; Santa Barbara, CA

University of Colorado, Colorado Springs; Colorado Springs, CO

Colorado State University; Fort Collins, CO


I earned my BA from Westmont College with a major in English Literature along with a minor in Religious Studies. I then attended the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs for my MA in Secondary English Curriculum and Instruction. I am currently working to earn my administrative license at CSU with the goal of eventually becoming a principal.


I grew up near Wellington, Colorado and am a graduate of Poudre High School. I spent some time exploring life in many regions of our country, which was great, but I'm quite happy to be back in northern Colorado and working at Lesher.

Favorite Quote: 

“We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Extra curriculars : 

I am one of the W.E.B. (Where Everybody Belongs) coordinators. This is an 8th-grade leadership group. In the past, I have also shared a passion of mine, tennis, with Lesher's 7th and 8th-grade students. 

Crazy fact: 
I am a lover of book clubs! I frequently belong to 3-4 clubs at a time.
Favorite Book: 

It is quite difficult for me to state my favorite book as it frequently changes. A few books I thoroughly enjoy are Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexi. Of course, I am also a big fan of Harry Potter and Wonder. American Born Chinese is a great graphic novel, and I loved listening to Echo in audio book form.
