Personal Information:
I was born in Portland, Oregon two days before Thanksgiving (many Thanksgivings ago!) In addition to sharing the creative side of Art with students, I am also a Colorado Certified Nursery Professional, Designer and Master Gardener employed with a local garden center/nursery in Littleton.  I have been married for 28 years and have 5 children – Emily 34, Hannah 25, Jonah, 24, Elizabeth 22 and Benjamin 20.  A proud grandmother of Noah who will be 2 in June. Our home is occupied by an additional 3 dogs and 1 cat. I am one of 7 children and grew up in Arvada, Colorado, attending Jefferson County schools.

Enjoys:
I enjoy dark chocolate! Gardening, organizing, and putting re-purposing projects are my favorite things to do in my spare time.

Fun Fact:
I’m on the cover of a local trade magazine.

What I love about my position:
Being surrounded by young, creative hands and minds and the opportunity to nurture what our Creator has placed in my care.

Favorite Bible verse:
Luke 23:40-43, “But the other criminal rebuked him, “Don’t you fear God, ” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in Paradise.”

A very beautiful reminder that no matter where we have been, what we have done with our lips we acknowledge that Jesus is Lord and whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
