Education has always been, and will always be, a strong influence in my life. After graduating from Avon Grove High School in Pennsylvania, I graduated from Philadelphia University with a degree in Digital Animation. I moved to Boulder, Colorado in 2012 with the hope of utilizing my creative background and organizational skills in the administration field. I have worked a variety of customer service and property management positions, but I wanted to apply my skills to a more meaningful purpose. I have always had a strong passion for children of all ages, and felt that I could connect with them on many levels. Touching the lives of many children through art camps, daycare, and school programs has been the most rewarding part of my career so far. I am so excited to have found a warm, welcoming, wonderful school like Summit Middle Charter School to call home. I am currently working towards finishing my Masters Degree at CSU Global in Teaching and Learning, in hopes of gaining even more tools to enhance the education system for children of all ages, and be part of the bigger picture of the learning environment. Outside of work and school, I enjoy spending time in the beautiful outdoors we are blessed with here in Colorado. I love hiking, biking, horseback riding, snowboarding, and pretty much anything that allows me to feel the wonderful sun on my face.
