I grew up in the small ski town of Vail, Colorado. I moved to Boulder to pursue a degree in Communication with a minor in Education and Leadership at CU Boulder. I found the Friends Teacher Preparation Program and it was the perfect place to fall in love with teaching. I spent my past year working as a teacher candidate in the Kindergarten classroom and am excited to continue at Friends this year working as an associate teacher offering support for preschool through fifth grade. I am really excited to spend time working a variety of ages and continuing to grow with the Friends Community. Outside of the classroom I love exploring all the beauty Colorado has to offer from hiking, skiing, and playing the difficult game of trying to guess the weather. I love to find new places, adventures, and experience different ways of life.
