Hello Woodmen Hills Students and Families!

I love being a part of Tornado Nation!  I was the Assistant Principal of WHES before becoming the Principal in the 2020-2021 school year.  I have greatly valued the partnerships with each of you while serving the learning community as we engage, elevate, and enhance the learning and teaching for our students and staff.  This year is no different, we will remain united in one mission - whatever it takes for our kids.

I started my career with Westside Community Schools in Omaha, Nebraska before moving to Colorado in 2007.  I then taught in Academy District 20 for 11 years before coming to WHES in 2018.  During my time at WCS and D20, I taught elementary and middle school Physical Education, Kindergarten, 1st grade, and also spent several years as a Gifted Education Specialist, Response to Intervention Coordinator, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support Leader, and Facilitator of Student Growth.

I am small town Nebraska born and raised, and my husband and I have two daughters.  In my time away from school, you will find our family outside and traveling – sometimes exploring all that Colorado has to offer, but most often at a baseball field somewhere across the nation.

Please reach out if you need anything - we are in this together!
