I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado and graduated from the University of Colorado in 1998 with a BA in Sociology. My Montessori career started when as a child, I attended a Montessori school for my Primary years. Years later, in 2001, I completed my AMI Elementary Montessori training at Washington Montessori Institute and received my Masters in Education from Loyola College. I have taught lower elementary and upper elementary classes in both private and public settings throughout the country. I also work at The Montessori Institute training center here in Denver.
I love living in the Denver area with my husband, Jamie, my daughter June (who is a student at Compass), and my dog, Polly. I enjoy yoga, reading, movies and attempting to be a better cook.
