I began working at Niwot Elementary in January 2012. I love working with our students, their families, and my colleagues!

I have worked in special education for 17 years - both in Colorado and Illinois. I have taught grades kindergarten through 12th. I currently hold a BS and Masters degree in Special Education, an Interdisciplinary Ed.S. degree in Educational Administration and Special Education Administration, and am currently working on obtaining my autism specialist certification.

My husband and I live in Longmont and have four children (three grown) and a grandson. It took us a while to make the move here from Illinois, but we absolutely love Colorado and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else!
