I grew up in Ohio and moved to Colorado in 2005. I worked in the banking industry for several years before making the leap to education. I started my career with Adams 12 at Mountain Range High School in 2007 before making the move to Westlake Middle School in 2011. I absolutely love the quirkiness of middle school years and I am proud to call Westlake my home away from home. Speaking of home...I have a wonderful husband and we have two beautiful little girls and three fur babies. We enjoy taking adventures to see our wonderful Colorado scenery and I enjoy painting, baking, and crafting.
