Biographical Sketch: 

I grew up in Missoula, MT where I learned to hike and ski in the Rocky Mtns. I moved to Ft. Collins to attend Poudre High School and become an Impala! I went to MN to go to college and then started teaching overseas after graduating. My first teaching assignment was teaching IB at Seoul Foreign School in Seoul, Korea (just in time to see the '88 Olympics). Then, I taught at an international (IB) school in Salzburg, Austria for 2 years. Returning to Ft. Collins, I joined the newly formed IB program at PHS in 1994. I also, did a one year teacher exchange in Penrith, England. I enjoy hiking, skiing, traveling and gardening with my husband and 2 children.
