Life Before Thomas Jefferson High School

I was born in Phoenix, Arizona but had the pleasure of growing up in the beautiful state of Colorado! This is my first year teaching at Thomas Jefferson High School and I am very excited to be here. I am a proud graduate of CU Boulder (SKO Buffs)! During my time at CU Boulder, I worked as a teaching assistant for a class called Nutrition for Health and Performance, and as a test proctor for CU’s Disability Services. After graduation, I worked in healthcare as a Certified Nursing Assistant before making the exciting switch into education. I enjoy being outdoors, learning about fitness and nutrition, and taking pictures of my pet tortoise, George.
