I moved to Colorado from upstate New York about 11 years ago and I could never go back to those frigid…never… ending…winters! I love Colorado and all that it has to offer. I live here in Stapleton with my husband Adam and our dog Summit. I attended St. Bonaventure University in Olean, NY with a degree in Visual Arts. I then completed my Master’s degree in CO at Regis University. I love to try new restaurants in Denver and take my dog for walks here in the neighborhood and to Cherry Creek Reservoir or the Evergreen dog park. My husband and I enjoy traveling and we are always looking for new exciting places to visit. The beach is my favorite place to be and I love to spend the day swimming in the ocean. This is my fifth year at Swigert and my first year teaching Art. I absolutely love teaching at Swigert because of the sense of unity with the staff, the emphasis on professional development, and the openness to change to create the best learning experiences for our students! I can’t wait for another wonderful year with my classes and the fabulous Swigert parent community!
