I am recently engaged to my high school sweetheart. My immediate family all lives here in Colorado with me, including my parents, my younger sister, and my older sister, who has three adorable young children. My two dogs and my new kitten bring me great joy. I have served a year with City Year Denver and I also received the Daniels Fund Scholarship, so I am always happy to help anyone who is interested in either of those programs. I enjoy reading, beading, coloring, cooking, and engaging in critical analysis with my students!
