I have been with the UNC Honors Program since January 2009 and at University of Northern Colorado since March of 2006. I have a B.A. in Social Science, with a minor in Business Administration, from California State University Stanislaus and an M.A. in Educational Leadership from University of Northern Colorado, with additional doctoral level course work in Educational Studies - Reform and Innovation program.
My academic interests include cultivating student leaders from diverse backgrounds, developing inclusive and holistic honors curriculum practices and integrating civic engagement into everyday active learning. I am an officer on the non-profit board of Ascent Equestrian Vaulters and was a co-founder of this high-performance equestrian vaulter 501c3 organization. I also love medieval history and spend a great deal of time outdoors with my family hiking, camping, and horseback riding.
