I have been working in Denver Public Schools since 2008. Inspired by teachers of my youth and unfulfilled with my post collegiate career in medical sales, I decided to take the plunge into education to help and encourage students to develop a passion for life long learning. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, CO. Sports, music, camping, mountain biking, and spending time getting immersed in new hobbies have always been passions of mine. I have two young energetic children, Maebe and Zeus, a partner who is a fellow DPS educator, and two rambunctious Boston Terriers named Obi and Higgins. I received my B.A. from the University of Colorado at Boulder and hopefully I will be completing my M.A. from CU Denver in the near future.
