I retired with 32 years of public education experience in 2015, with 16 years in the classroom as a history teacher and 16 years as an administrator. My last 10 years I served as principal of Highlands Ranch High School.  I believe that leadership is essential for students to succeed in our K-12 educational systems. I am passionate about Educational Leadership and I strongly believe in leading with the power of influence by building strong relationships. 

I earned my BA degree from Regis University in 1982 and I am honored to return as a faculty member. I earned an MA in Secondary Education from Adams State University. In addition, I earned an Educational Leadership/Principal Licensure Certificate from Denver University.  I continue to be a member of CASE and NASSP, state and national level organizations for K-12 school administrators.  I continue to attend yearly conferences and trainings associated with Educational Leadership.

Recently I was inducted into the Highlands Ranch High School Hall of Fame for my 10-years of service as principal.  I am honored to be recognized as the STEP-Emergenetics Associate of the Year in 2018 for my work with STEP-Emergenetics at the University level.
