Biographical Sketch: 

Although I am a California girl by birth, Fort Collins has been my home since 1996.  It was here that I met my mate-for-life, Glenn, while enjoying the live-music scene.  When I am not hanging out in the hallways at Lincoln, I am throwing discs at one of our disc golf courses, starting a new knitting or sewing project and keeping up with my teens, dog and cat!  Nora Ephron said, “When your children are teenagers, it’s important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you.” We are trudging the path to happy destiny!

Poudre School District hired me in 1998 as a Spanish Teacher at one of our fantastic junior high schools.  Eagerly, I jumped at the opportunity when offered a Counseling position at Lincoln in 2006.  I remain excited to work with my team of Professional School Counselors and am confident that the Lincoln staff will support your student through the chaos of adolescence. I feel as if I am the luckiest person in the world to be paid to do my work as a School Counselor.  I am passionate about every student learning more about who they are and what makes them come alive.   In this work, I most enjoy working with 8th graders as they transition to high school.  I aspire to help every student increase the tools in their toolbox so that they can fulfill the mission repeated every time we hear announcements…
