I was born in South Carolina but grew up in the Denver area. I earned my bachelor's degree from the University of Northern Colorado and my Master's in Library Science from Emporia State University. I was an 8th grade English teacher for three years and I've been a librarian since 2000. I have two sons, ages 2 and 6. My husband and I have lived in Colorado Springs since 1996. I worked in Harrison School District #2 and Falcon School District #49 before working here at Challenger. I very much enjoy teaching and working with everyone at CMS.
