This is my eighth year teaching at SRE and living in Colorado, and I am thrilled to continue teaching kindergarten for my second year.  I was born and raised in Connecticut, graduated from Denison University with a BA, in Psychology, and the University of Bridgeport with an MS in Elementary Education.  I love sports (watching and playing), cooking (and eating!) new recipes, and enjoying life to its fullest.  My twin boys (Ben and Riley) moved here to be with my amazing husband, David, and his two children (Ana and Carson), all of whom round out our very happy and blessed family in Roxborough Park with our 100 pound English Lab, Kodi the Bear.

This is my first year as a kindergarten teacher at Saddle Ranch, and being a kindergarten teacher is the most fun job I've ever had. The students, families, and staff at SRE are truly the best! I grew up in Highlands Ranch and graduated from TRHS, going on to get a degree in Business from CU Boulder, where I met my husband. We spent some time living in Shreveport, Louisiana, where our two children were born, followed by a few years in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. In 2020, we decided it was time to be HOME with our families, and we moved back to Highlands Ranch.
