I hold a master’s degree in print journalism, and previously worked as a reporter and advertising copywriter. I moved to Colorado from Missouri, in 2001, for a job and adventure. I found both, and five years later moved overseas with my husband and dog, to a rural village in North Yorkshire, UK. While overseas I traveled and indulged in French baking as much as possible. I enjoy being outdoors with my family, which has grown by two children, and trail running. This year I hope to complete a half Ironman triathlon, and an ultra-marathon. I’m excited to show my students what life has to offer, and to see them grow.
