I was born and raised in Woodinville, WA. I moved to Denver, CO two years ago and Denver finally feels like home to me and I’m never leaving! I grew up playing soccer and ended up playing at the collegiate level at Washington State University for four years. During the summer months I enjoy camping, hiking and traveling and during the winter months I spend every weekend up in the mountains skiing! I am honored to be a part of the North Community. Each and every one of our students brings joy and laughter to my day. Being the 8th grade counselor is something I am very passionate about and I am proud to be a Polar Bear!

North Edge Characteristic that resonates with you and why:
My teammates say that I best represent Perseverance and Team Focused characteristics. Being involved in team sports my whole life, being part of a team and being Team Focused is something that is very important to me. When we are all on the same page and have the same values and beliefs as a staff, we are able to accomplish more than we could as individuals. I take pride in going the extra mile to make sure all students are on the path to success here at North. The characteristic that I appreciate the most in other staff members is ‘TIME’. In the grand scheme of things, we have very little time with our kids and it is important that we maximize every second of every day to make a difference.
