I grew up in the suburbs of Denver and attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska for my undergraduate degree. Before TJ, I lived abroad in Honduras doing public health work for a year and then worked for a non-profit for 5 years teaching cooking and nutrition classes to parents and families around the Denver metro area while studying to get my Master’s in School Counseling. I worked at West Leadership Academy in DPS last year and am very excited to be here at TJ! In my free time, I love to hang out with my family and friends, exercise, read, cook, hike and ski. I try to travel as much as I can in the summers ( long road trips or going anywhere in Latin America are my favorite!). I am looking forward to a great first year here at TJ!
