About Me

Short Personal Description: 

I grew up in the suburbs of Denver and attended Colorado State University, studying chemistry, natural science, and education. After completing student teaching with Glenn Gainley at RMHS, I worked as a permanent substitute at Arvada High School before accepting a job as a science teacher at Fort Collins High School. I was very excited to be reunited with my Lobo family in the fall of 2015 and have been here ever since! I completed my masters in natural science education at Colorado State in 2018. Outside of work I enjoy playing with my dogs, running, yoga, supporting the Colorado Avalanche, cheering for the Green Bay Packers, and quilting.

What does the Lobo Way mean to me?: 

The Lobo Way means family. It means compassion, respect, perseverance, and integrity. It means doing the next right thing. 

Favorite Quote: 

Do not let the fact that things are not made for you, that conditions are not as they should be, stop you. Go on anyway. Everything depends on those who go on anyway.
