Born and raised in Tucson, AZ, I am the second of four children. I attended the University of Arizona where I received my degree in Journalism. A year after my husband and I were married, we moved from Arizona to Colorado which was coming “home” for my husband. We have two children who attended Lafayette schools, including Ryan! My husband and son are graduates of CSU in Ft. Collins and my daughter graduated from Adams State University in Alamosa. I also have a yellow lab, she needs to graduate from obedience school! I am grateful that my children still live nearby and I get to see them often! I enjoy traveling, walking and biking, scrapbooking and reading. I began working at Ryan in 1994. I feel very fortunate to be part of this amazing learning community!
