I am a Denver native, graduating from George Washington High School. I attended Metro State, where my interests leaned towards Forensics and Law Enforcement. My plan was to graduate and work for the Colorado State Patrol. Needless to say, I ended up going a completely different direction! I have two daughters, Mylia, who is in college and recently married, and Autumn, who is a senior at East High School (and making big plans for college). I have two dogs, a Husky named Dash and a Dachshund named Dutchess. I have worked for Denver Public Schools on and off for almost 20 years!
