Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 22nd year teaching - and 8th year teaching Forensic Science and Biology at Ironwood Ridge. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado and received my B.S. in Forest Biology at Colorado State University. After that, I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ecuador. It was there that I realized how much I loved to teach. When I returned, I went back to school and received my teaching certification and Master's in Education from Ottawa University. After that, I taught Science (mainly Biology) and coached cross-country and track in Phoenix for 12 years. This year I am, once again, coaching the Girl's and Boy's Cross Country Team along with Coach Angia Dylla. I have a daughter who will be in 10th grade right here at Ironwood Ridge this year, I love to run, cycle and be outdoors and balance myself with yoga. I am very excited to be teaching at Ironwood Ridge again this year!
