Biographical Sketch

I am originally from Texas but have lived in Colorado for the past 20 years.   I moved up to the mountains for a more active healthy lifestyle.  I met my amazing husband, Rob, and have 2 beautiful children and 2 loveable fur babies.  We decided to move to Fort Collins and have been here since 2010.  We love all that Colorado has to offer.  My family and I love to camp, 4 wheel, hike, mountain bike, paddle board, and play multiple sports especially volleyball.

Educational Background/Work Experience

I received my Bachelor of Science Degree, with a Specialization in Reading and Kinesiology, from Stephen F. Austin State University while playing on a Volleyball scholarship.  I begin working for the YMCA as the Sports Director for all youth and adult sports and the Outreach Program., but my desire to  teaching began with  5th grade while coaching volleyball, basketball, and track at the high school level.  I then started teaching Physical Education while coaching these sports while adding cheerleading.  When I moved to the mountains, I taught elementary Physical Education at Breckenridge Elementary School.  I also taught Kindergarten at Summit Cove Elementary School.  I then took time off to raise my two beautiful girls.  When we moved to Fort Collins, I started working at Riffenburgh Elementary School as the Physical Education teacher.  I am now at Preston Middle School and have been here for the past five years teaching Physical Education and Health.  I also starting teaching Boot Camp for fun and now own my own Boot Camp Business.  I love instilling and teaching healthy habits not only for kids, but adults as well.  In addition, I founded a developmental volleyball club team, Colorado Impact Volleyball, to give girls an opportunity to play volleyball around  Northern Colorado.

Why I Enjoy Preston

This will be my sixth year at Preston and I love teaching our awesome students!   The support our families give teachers is wonderful and couldn't imagine teaching any where else.  I love working for our amazing administration team and my Physical Education and Health team.  Preston has so much to offer our students to help them become better learners and humans.  I enjoy seeing our students grow into smart, positive young adults!  I want to teach them to make healthy habits that will last a life time!  GO PUMAS!
