Prior to me being a teacher, I worked as an advocate in the battered women's movement for 10 years. It was when I was a teen advocate at Crossroads Safehouse, that I got the idea to do a career change as I did a lot with PSD on what healthy and unhealthy relationships look like in various classrooms. I earned my master’s in Education at Colorado State University in 2005 through a program called Project Promise and I have been a social studies teacher at Rocky Mountain High School here in Fort Collins, Colorado since. I am married to Eric Lea and we have 2 amazing daughters.

To unlock the potential each of us has within ourselves and to help better our community because of it. We do this through our attitudes, gratitude, focus, purpose, respect, and commitment...a lot of character building. Not just saying these words...but truly being them through our thoughts and actions.
