I graduated from Drake University in Des Moines, IA with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and Special Education. In addition, I received my Master's Degree from the University of Northern Colorado in Special Education with an emphasis in Applied Behavioral Analysis.
I grew up in a town called Woodstock, IL, about an hour outside of Chicago. I then went to school in Iowa and lived there for a few years before finally moving to beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado! I am currently in my eighth year of teaching as a special education teacher. I have worked at the elementary level and at the high school level. I enjoy hiking, playing with my new puppy, camping, riding my bike, skiing, going to concerts, and traveling! I am very excited about being at Poudre this school year!
