She has spent most of her career teaching music and drama in charter schools but is thrilled to be at Denver Christian School. Along with teaching full time, she also runs a private piano and voice studio and has performed and directed in shows all across the Denver Metro Area where she served as Vice President for Platte Valley Players in Brighton.

Her greatest prayer for students of any age is that they learn to believe in themselves and have the confidence to do anything God has put before their path!
