I was born and raised in Lakewood, Colorado. I graduated from Wheat Ridge High School in 1992 and attended Northwestern University where I was a member of the women's swim team and discovered my love for speech therapy. I earned my Master's degree in Speech-Language therapy from the University of Oregon. I married my husband Lee in 2000 and we have two daughters, Laelle (13) and Ashlyn (11). I am so happy to be a part of the Compass community as I begin my 17th year working for Jeffco schools.
