About Me
Short Personal Description: 

I was born in Casper, Wyoming and lived in Oslo Norway for 7 years! I moved to Highlands Ranch, Colorado from there and consider it "home." I played college soccer at Hastings College in Nebraska for a short time before transferring home to CSU! I studied Health and Exercise Science there and coached soccer.I went back to school to get my Masters Degree and took my first teaching job at Northglenn High School in 2015. I am going into my third year here at RMHS and LOVE IT! I am a diehard Broncos fan, I have 2 awesome dogs and a wonderful husband and family! I am so incredibly fortunate to call Rocky my  home and cannot wait to see what the future holds!

What does the Lobo Way mean to me?: 

That we are a family! A family supports, helps, pushes and betters one another everyday. They work hard for one another, they help one another grow and become better and they lift one another up in times of need. Being a LOBO means having a community that helps you be the best you can be for yourselves and for others.

Interest & Hobbies: 

I love spending time with my family and friends. I love to travel! I love working out, being outside with my dogs or at the pool! I love coaching soccer & watching the Broncos! I like yoga, any type of sport, relaxing and laughing. 

Favorite Quote: 

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children… to leave the world a better place… to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
