Biography - I attended Custer County Schools from 5th grade through 12th grade. I graduated from Custer County High School in 2017. After High School I attended the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. In May of 2022, I graduated from UCCS with my Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education and my Bachelor's Degree in English. After graduating college I moved back to Westcliffe, where I got married to my college sweetheart and received my endorsement for teaching Social Studies. I am very excited to be teaching here at Custer County Schools and am very excited to be a Bobcat again!
