“If you get, give. If you learn, teach.” – Maya Angelou

I was born in Illinois, but I was raised here in Denver and attended Denver Public Schools as a child. I am married and have four wonderful children. Raising my own children has given me a deeper insight to the uniqueness that each child brings to the world. This has given me a greater understanding of and compassion towards the development of the whole child. I enjoy going on adventures and exploring the world with my wee ones and delight in the simple wonders of life. When I am not exploring with my children, I enjoy the stillness of the early morning while sitting outside sipping coffee and reading a good book. I also practice yoga to maintain well-being. I am looking forward to being a part of the Ashley community and am excited to engage in learning with the scholars!
