Hire Year: 2016

Educational History: 22 years supporting students of all grades and abilities.

Why I chose to work at Aspen: I choose to work at Aspen because I fully appreciate the flexibility, ingenuity and THINK values that create a community of learners with shared goals. It is through this community that students of all ages feel confident and proud to put their best foot forward.

Something new I hope to incorporate in my teaching this year is: I was very fortunate to attend an extensive training to become a Crisis Prevention Intervention Instructor. I will incorporate my newly honed skills in de-escalation techniques and therapeutic rapport to build up student emotional literacy and refine staff support during crisis.

Hobbies/Interests: Family is huge for me. I love staying active and making memories. I exercise, fish, swim, sail, berry-pick, Uber, garden and see bunches of live music.

Favorite author/historical figure: Charles Ohiyesa Eastman

Personal motto/inspirational quote: Wind in the sail. Oar in the water.
