I was born in St Petersburg, Florida, the eldest of 7 children. I grew up in both sunny Florida and colorful Colorado, moving back and forth numerous times. I received my teaching degree from MSCD and have been involved with education for over 20 years. I value children immensely and believe I am very fortunate to be a part of their educational journey. I have been at Knapp since August of 2014 and joining this community was one of the best decisions I ever made. I enjoy traveling with my three daughters, reading, and spending time with my very large extended family.
