I am originally from St. Louis, MO and graduated from Truman State University. Then I moved to Chicago, IL to work in a group home for teenage boys where I went on to attend Loyola University Chicago and received a Master of Social Work degree. I spent many years working with children and families impacted by sexual assault and domestic violence. 

I moved to Fort Collins in 2007 and have had the pleasure of staying home with my two girls for the past several years.  I enjoy the support of my husband who is both a math teacher and Marine reservist.  I had the pleasure of working at CSU in the Student Case Management office last spring and am very happy to have the opportunity to work at CSU again in ALVS office. 

I enjoy running, hiking, Les Mills fitness classes, cooking, reading (the more book clubs I am a part of the better!), and being with my family.
