What I love about working at Beattie: 

There are so many things to love about Beattie. In all of my experience, this is by far the warmest, most caring place! I LOVE coming to work every day. Our students are amazing and I so enjoy walking with them on their educational journey. Our staff is supportive, smart and dedicated to the success of all students.

Personal Interests/Hobbies: 

My husband and I have two wonderful kids. Our 19 year old son is a junior at CU Boulder and our 23 year old daughter is the Director of Lifelong learning for an organization in Connecticut. Upon becoming empty nesters a few years ago, my husband and I began keeping chickens. We love spending time with friends and family, movies and being ouside.
