Preschool Team

I moved from North Dakota to the Vail Valley and married my college sweetheart.  We have two grown children, as well as a dog, Katie.  I attended The University of North Dakota where I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education.  My passion for working with children has extended throughout my lifetime, including 19 years of teaching at and/or directing various early childhood centers in the Vail Valley.  I have had the opportunity to do volunteer mission trips to Peru, Minnesota, and Alabama.  I currently assist with an Awana program that works with school aged children teaching the Bible through songs, crafts and memory verses.  I enjoy combining my interests/talents with God’s mission, including children, photography, travel, baking, and arts and crafts.  

I love teaching, I love the children’s infectious laughter, their creative imaginations and their love of learning.  Each day is an adventure filled with wonder, discovery, and opportunities to share, learn and have fun!
