This is my second year as the Elementary School Social Worker and 504 Coordinator at STEM School Highlands Ranch. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Russian from Middlebury College in Vermont, and a Master of Social Work Degree with an Animal Assisted Social Work Certificate from the University of Denver. Prior to becoming a school social worker, I worked in a variety of capacities in the educational field. I obtained my secondary teaching credential in Social Studies and Russian, taught pre-school in Spain, served as an Exchange Program Coordinator in Russia, worked with military families in South Korea, and led the Admissions Department for an experiential education company in Washington, DC.
I moved to Littleton 14 years ago, and during that time have served as a member of the Douglas County School Board's Long Range Planning Committee, a member of the Gifted & Talented Advisory Committee for Littleton Public Schools, a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), and a Victim Advocate for the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, walking our dog, traveling, and reading.
