I grew up in a small town outside of Orlando, FL. I moved to Jacksonville, FL to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice at the University of North Florida. After college, I worked at Outward Bound as a Program Coordinator and Initiative Instructor for at-risk youth. I moved to Denver, CO in 2013 to focus on my education and experience in special education. I worked as a paraprofessional and coach until I was hired at Adams 12 as a Special Education Teacher in 2015. I earned my Master's degree in Special Education at Metropolitan State University.
I am currently the Co-chair of the Special Education Department, Significant Support Needs Teacher and Coach for Special Olympics.
