Originally from Arizona, I moved to Colorado six years ago as a traveling Speech-Language Pathologist. I've worked and traveled abroad as an English as a Foreign Language Teacher, including working in Kosovo with the United Nations. I've been in education from PK through Senior citizens for over thirteen years including a stint as a High School Art Teacher and private practitioner in Spain. I decided to make Colorado Springs my home last year after purchasing a townhouse near Chipeta.
I love hiking with my partner, Andrew and my dog Anya. My hobbies are ballroom dancing, especially Argentine Tango, and painting. Communication is my passion whether it is verbal, kinetic or visual. I hope to learn to play a musical instrument this year, possibly upright bass.
The joy and success of my students when communicating with others is the primary focus of my varied career. Students bring light into my day and make this work incredibly worthwhile.
Talking to kids is pretty fun! Watching them succeed and knowing I'm part of that is The Best.
