About Me

I am a Fort Collins native and a graduate of Rocky Mountain High School. I absolutely love living in Colorado and working in PSD! I am married to Dylan and we have 2 of the sweetest, craziest, and cutest kitties- Pam and Melly. 

Educational Background

I attended the Harvard of the West- Colorado State University (GO RAMS!!) and received my undergraduate degree in Human Development and Family Studies. I have always known my heart was in education and I went back to CSU for my Masters of Education in School Counseling. I was fortunate to start working at Preston Middle School after graduating in 2016. 

What I Love About School Counseling

I grew up going to a summer camp in Estes Park, Colorado and had the opportunity to work there during the summers for 6 years. I absolutely loved working with young people and knew that I wanted to make it my career. My favorite part of my job is getting to know our Preston students. I love their energy, curiosity, personalities, and humor! As a school counselor, building relationships is the foundation of what I do and truly makes my heart happy!

Favorite Books

I love to read and my favorite books are always about travel and the outdoors. I’m also a huge Harry Potter fan!

Interests & Hobbies

I am an outdoors lover and most of my free time is spent in nature. During the summer I love hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, camping, backpacking, and trail running. In the winter I ski as much as I possibly can. I also love to spend time with my family, watch and play sports, cook, travel and garden!

Courses Taught

I am a counselor for students with last names P-Z and am the MTSS Coordinator for Preston. I also coach Volleyball and co-sponsor WEB/Leadership and the Outing Club.
