I was raised in farm country Ohio, baling hay, getting kicked by cows, and the like. My dad was a cop and always seemed to know what I was up to. I was very fortunate to have creeks, forests, hills and dirt to play in as a kid. It gave me an appreciation for hard work and nature.
Bachelors in Zoology from Miami University (Ohio!). Postbaccalaureate in Education from Colorado State. Masters in Education from George Mason University.
I spent 7 years in biochemistry research at Michigan State and Colorado State and eventually became a science teacher at Rocky (thank you Carol Seemueller and Scott Kemp!). I planned on a year break to travel, but it turned into about 10 years- and it was great! After getting my masters in counseling I worked for two years at a school near Washington DC while wanting to come back to FoCo and Rocky. Now that I made it back there is no other place I would rather be.
Serving others while always trying to better oneself.
guitar, all outdoor pursuits, reading, cycling and bikes in general, travel, my friends and family mean the most to me.
Speak your mind but ride a fast horse.
