Who I Am:

First and foremost, I'm "Mom" to two little boys, ages 3 and 6, who are currently enrolled in Estes Park Elementary and Mountaintop Childcare and "Wife" to my amazing husband of 15 years. When I'm not in my Mom and Wife-mode, I'm a passionate educator who has served as a classroom teacher and volleyball coach, instructional coach, and state department of education/district specialist. While my family and I have only lived in Estes for about 2 years, we know it's where we want to raise our boys as it embodies all we love about small towns! It has been my honor for the last 7 months to serve as a Director on the Estes Park School District's Board of Education, and I'm here to hopefully be able to continue that work!

Why I'm Running:

As a career educator, I believe deeply in our public education system and the impact School Boards have on those systems. As a mom of two little boys who will go through the Estes Park School District, I want to know I have worked to ensure they and their classmates have access to the best educational experience the district can provide. As a former classroom teacher, I want to ensure our Estes Park educators have all the support needed and systems in place to help our students thrive. As a former specialist in education policy, I want to identify local opportunities that allow our students to grow, provide them opportunities to explore and learn, and help them become engaged, committed members of our community.
