I am from Silverdale, Washington, a beautiful town located on the Puget Sound. I am the youngest of four girls, and the daughter of a teacher. Between my older sisters, I have 5 nephews and 1 niece and take any chance to travel back to Washington to spend time with them! I attended Washington State University (Go Cougs!) as well as Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington for my Master’s degree. Most of my teaching experience was in Phoenix, Arizona where I would grade papers by the pool, if it wasn’t too hot. I moved to Denver in 2015 and have fallen in love with it ever since. In my spare time I enjoy running, hiking, traveling, and spending time drinking coffee with friends.
