About Me

I am thrilled to be returning to Stargate for the 2017-2018 school year as a secondary visual arts teacher! This is my 7 1/2 year of teaching art in the Denver metro area. I have experience teaching a variety of mediums and courses such as ceramics, drawing and painting, AP Studio Art and International Baccalaureate (IB) Visual Arts. 

I earned my Bachelors of Fine Art with a Printmaking emphasis and a minor in Art History from Colorado State University. During that time I studied abroad in Florence, Italy for a semester which was both rewarding and challenging. I later attended Metropolitan State University from 2008-2009 and received my K-12 art education teaching license. In my personal art I love layering and combining both traditional and non-traditional art materials, 
getting messy and experimenting. After all, art should be about the EXPERIENCE!!

I am a Colorado native, born and raised in the Denver area. I currently live in Northwest Denver with my husband Bret, our son Maverick and our rescue greyhound Louie. I am so grateful to have lived in such a beautiful place my whole life and really enjoy all outdoor activities and traveling the world. I've visited about 10 different countries throughout my life and have a huge passion for learning about new cultures. 

What I Love about Teaching 
One of the most amazing things about being an art teacher is being able to witness how students evolve throughout the creative process of observing, thinking, making and connecting to the world around them. I love sharing my creative passions with students and being able to form unique relationships. Being able to laugh with and learn from my students is why I do the work that I do.
