I was born in Boulder, Colorado but grew up down the street in Englewood, CO. I graduated from Englewood High School in 2009 and have been dedicated to the English Language Arts and Education ever since. I attended the University of Denver for one year where I became involved in Slam Poetry and had two poems published in the Foothills Literary Journal. I then transferred to Metropolitan State University of Denver where I majored in English and Secondary Education. This is my first year at TJ and I am incredibly excited to call myself a Spartan! In my off time, I love to read, write, go hiking, go camping, go to concerts and hang out with my puppies! Welcome to TJ and have an excellent year!
