I moved to Colorado in my early teens and I have loved living here. I did a lot of "growing up" in the Northglenn, Thornton, Westminster area, and now proudly serve as a member of the Adams 12 Board of Education. I earned my Associates degree in Accounting at Front Range Community College in Westminster and later earning a Bachelors in Accounting from Regis University. While I do not find myself with the skills to teach, I knew education was important to me which makes my role working for the University of Colorado Boulder very fulfilling. I have been married to a middle school Social Studies teacher for over a decade and we have two amazing children, the oldest of which started Kindergarten this fall.
