I was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado and spent my childhood going back and forth from Colorado to Scottsdale, Arizona working on my grandparents horse ranch.  I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Social Worker from Colorado State University, and my Masters degree in Social Worker and Psychology from Denver University.  One interesting fact about me is, I'm deathly afraid of heights and have been working on riding gondolas up mountain tops to overcome my fear and anxiety of heights.   It is a privilege to serve the Maple Grove community, and I am excited to make more connections, build solid relationships, and to have an impact on our school and community.

I was born in Denver, Colorado and grew up in Littleton. After graduating from Lakewood High School, I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder to study International Affairs. I worked at an education nonprofit for a year, then decided to pursue teaching through the Stanley Teacher Prep program. Recently, I received my Masters in Responsive Literacy Education with a Special Education Endorsement. This is my seventh year teaching and my first year at Maple Grove. In my free time I love to travel, hike, play volleyball, and spend time with my friends and family. This year I am so excited to meet all of the Maple Grove students and families!
