Dakota Ridge HS Counseling Website



I received my B.A. in History and Social Studies Teaching from Colorado State University, Ft. Collins and my M.A. in School Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado. Prior to being at Dakota Ridge HS, I worked as a substitute teacher in Jeffco and as a counselor at Evergreen H.S. Aside from counseling, I also co-sponsor the SnowRiders Club and Women's Hiking Club for DRHS. 

I grew up near Dakota Ridge, so working here feels like home. I feel very fortunate to be able to work with the DRHS students and community. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, Tyler, and our dog, Bergen.  I am a proud Colorado Native and am continually seeking out new adventures and beautiful areas within our state. I love being in the mountains/outdoors, hiking, skiing, yoga, working out, podcasts, reading, traveling, a good country concert and cheering on our Broncos and Avs!!! 

I am passionate about helping students through the trials and tribulations of high school in order to help them find success in whatever they choose to pursue after their high school years.
