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. I worked as a substitute teacher in Jeffco and as a counselor at Evergreen H.S., prior to being a counselor at DRHS. I grew up near Dakota Ridge, so Dakota Ridge feels like home me and I feel so lucky to be able to work here. I currently co-sponsor the SnowRiders club and Women's Hiking Club for DRHS. I am a PROUD Colorado Native and am continually seeking out new adventures and beautiful areas within our state. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, Tyler, and our 1 year old Siberian Husky/Great Pyrenees rescue pup, Bergen. I also love the outdoors, hiking, running, skiing, practicing yoga, traveling and cheering on the Broncos!! 
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.
