About Me
I was born and raised in Baraboo, a small town in central Wisconsin. Being raised in a small town helped me appreciate how a community is supposed to function. The desire to be part of a community is one of many reasons that Fort Collins has been such a great place to live.
Professional Background/Education/Experience: 

My college degrees (Associate's and Bachelor's degrees) are in Hospitality & Tourism Management and Global Studies.  During this time, I gained a great global perspective by participating in study abroad programs in Thailand and India.  My professional experience has primarily been in fine dining and customer service.  I applied my education and professional experience to support teachers and students as a volunteer teaching assistant at Hermitage Elementary School in Tennessee.  When we moved to Fort Collins last year, I sought out and obtained a full-time paraprofessional position at Bauder Elementary School.  I greatly enjoyed working at Bauder.  This year I will be a 2nd/3rd grade paraprofessional at Beattie.

Personal Interests/Hobbies: 

When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband (Dan) and our two wonderful daughters Ava and Fiona and playing with our Aussie Max.  I love traveling and have visited 25 countries and 40 states.
