I was born in Colorado Springs , CO and raised in Tyrone, GA throughout my high school years. I was fortunate enough to earn a academic and athletic scholarship to Colorado Christian University where I pursued a History Major and Secondary Education Minor. After two years I transferred to University of Colorado @ Colorado Springs to finish off my degree as well as playing years. Before finishing off my teaching license I took a year to work as a guest teacher in Adams 12 school district where I first fell in love with the commitment to education and relationship to students that is shown in the district. This marks my third year teaching and my first year teaching at The Mountain. I also serve as the JV basketball coach and the assistant varsity basketball coach for the basketball program.
