Bio

I came to Colorado as an Air Force "brat" when I was in 4th grade, and I attended Doherty High School in Colorado Springs before heading to the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. My bachelors degree in Broadcast Journalism and masters in Secondary English Education were both earned at ASU. I've worked in public relations for a professional sports team (National Basketball Association Phoenix Suns), in pharmaceutical sales, and in education as an English and Honors English teacher. Prior to coming to Dakota Ridge, I taught in the Paradise Valley and Deer Valley School Districts in the north Phoenix area. After spending 26 years in Phoenix, my husband, Todd, and I brought our family to Colorado to be near family, escape the 115+ summers, and experience a true change of seasons. Our son is a graduate teaching assistant in the Department of English, our oldest daughter a senior, and our youngest daughter a freshman, all at Colorado State University. We are an active family and enjoy hiking, the outdoors, travel, family, and spending time with our dogs, Ellie and Muggle, and horses, Annabelle and Tootsie.
