About Me
What do you do at PCA?: 

I am 100% Counselor for PCA!!

Describe your Educational Background from High School to where you are now.: 

I graduated from Unionville High School in Unionville, PA.  From there I attended the University of Delaware, in Newark, DE and graduated with a BA in Art History.  My next degree was a Master's in Art Education from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.  I then decided to do it again and get a second Master's in Counseling Psychology at Webster University, also in Albuquerque.

What inspired you to become a teacher or work in a school if not a teacher?: 

I believe my sophmoric humor naturally fits in with kids of all ages!  The energy and excitment of students is a ton of fun and I am naturally drawn to wanting to help people, especially kids!

What are some of your hobbies?: 

I am definitely a family person, and love to hang with my husband and two daughters.  One is a junior at CSU and the other is a senior at Fort Collins high.  We really like eating out and going to movies!  I love to read, all kinds of books, especially mysteries and YA books.  Sometimes I work on my own YA writing, when I am not being lazy!  I like to workout at the FC Club.  I have 2 dogs and 2 cats!!

What was your first job? What did it teach you? : 

I was a fruit and vegetable bagger at a local outdoor fruit stand!  Wow, the bees were bad and we had to dodge them all the time!  Someone always went home with too many stings to work!!
