I have two amazing children that I love and adore :) Indigo is eighteen this year and Angelo is 16. I have three sisters and one brother in my immediate family as well!
I spent most of my educational career at the University of Illinois. While there I earned an undergraduate degree in Political Science/International Law and graduate degrees in Curriculum and Instruction, Special Education and Educational Leadership. I am currently finishing up a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from Colorado State University.
I was born in Jeanette, Pennsylvania and spent most of my youth in Orland Park, Illinois. I love being from the Midwest, but I love living in Colorado even more! I still return home to eat good pizza a few times each year, and then return to the mountains that I love.
I love to do yoga, snowboard, paddleboard and spend time with my children. I love to travel and see the world each summer as well. I think that new perspectives help me be a better leader.
Human kind. Be both.
One of my favorite stories/series is the Chronicles of Narnia. I used to reread them start to finish every summer growing up...and still...sometimes still do.
Pittsburgh Steelers of course!
