I am very excited to be joining the Meridian family! This is my 1st year teaching at Meridian Elementary, however I have multiple years of experience working with children, adolescence and adults with diabilities. My experiences include being a substitute teacher in Adams 12 last year, behavior therapist, instructor at a day program facility and milld/moderate special education teacher. I have my B.A. in Special Education from Metro State University and my M.A in Special Education with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis from the Univeristy of Colorado Denver.
I was born in Michigan, but raised in beautiful Colorado! My husband James and I live in Thornton, CO and have an 11 year old black lab, Audee Lou, who is a true puppy at heart. I love to workout, spend time with friends and family, going to the mountains and traveling back to Michigan every summer to see family and spend time on Lake Michigan. I'm looking forward to this school year and getting to know all of my families and students!
