Hello! This is my third year as the Speech-Language Pathology Assistant at NGMS and I am so excited to be back! I work with students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade both inside and outside the classroom. Watching students progress in their ability to communicate puts a smile on my face and inspires me to challenge myself and the students to grow even more. I am originally from Southern California but moved to Colorado in 2001. I earned my B.S. in Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences from the University of Northern Colorado in 2016 and will start graduate school in January 2019. I am a mother of four; two boys, a stepdaughter, and stepson, all of whom have attended or are attending school in Adams12. As a family, we love to travel, watch movies and spend time outdoors skiing, hiking, camping, and boating. I also enjoy baking, gardening, playing tennis and walking my dogs.
