This my ninth year as a Thomas Jefferson Spartan and I love this school and I love what I do! I am the Special Education Senior Team Lead, Department Chair and the Affective Needs Center teacher and case manager. Prior to teaching I have owned my own successful framing business, published community newspapers and magazines throughout Los Angeles and the beach cities, and was a ski instructor at Winter Park Resort. I am a native Coloradoan and my family loves to hike, ski, cook and play Frisbee golf. GooooOOOOO Spartans, Broncos & Rams (and Bears since our son is studying at UNC)!
