"If enough people think of a thing and work hard enough at it, I guess it's pretty nearly bound to happen, wind and weather permitting." - Laura Ingalls Wilder


Hello! I am so excited to meet you all! I grew up here in Colorado Springs, and I have been a classroom teacher in Title 1 schools for most of my career. In 2013 I married my wonderful husband, and I have two young kids who are such a joy! My family and I are Mountain Lions through and through (as my mother, myself, and my sister, and most of my cousins have graduated from UCCS) and I am thrilled to help you successfully navigate college.
