I was born and raised in Littleton, Colorado. I graduated from Colorado State University in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in Studio Art concentrating in Graphic Design. After college, I spent time learning Spanish in Guatemala and teaching English in Peru. I completed my K-12 Art Education Teaching Certificate in December 2010 from Metro State College of Denver. I have taught Fine Arts at Vista Peak since Fall of 2011. I married my wonderful husband in June of 2012.
I am passionate about investing one-on-one time in relationships, breath-taking photography, making art, spending time with my amazing family, gardening, rain, acoustic music and I feel alive through new adventures. This year I will be teaching Introduction to 3D Art, Ceramics and a college-level 2D design class. I'm excited to start my 7th year of teaching at Vista Peak Preparatory!
