I am born and raised in Denver, Colorado and I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma Washington. I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mongolia teaching English and working on small scale development projects.
I worked as a paraprofessional at Emily Griffith Alternative High School while getting my Masters of Education at Regis University. I then taught AP Human Geography is Xian, China for two years and IB History at Colegio ATID in Mexico City for two years. Although I loved living abroad I am very happy to be back in Denver.
