For years I’ve heard amazing things about SkyView Academy so I am thrilled to work here now as an Assistant in the Elementary Health Room! For 6 years prior to coming to SVA I was a caregiver for my mother who had a stroke. It was something I’ll never regret but it’s time to move on to the next chapter. I love kids and cheering them up with Lora in the Health Room is awesome! Helping children with their needs brings me such joy each day!

My husband, Steve, and I have been married for 26 years. I’m originally from Texas and he’s from Michigan. We met in Vail and have been enjoying the Colorado outdoors ever since! We’ve been blessed with two awesome kids, Ashley who is 20 and a junior at CU Boulder and Austin, age 14, a freshman in High School. We also have a sweet Border Collie named Roxy. My faith along with my family are all very important to me.

In my spare time I enjoy doing anything with my family especially traveling. I also love walking our dog, biking, playing Pickleball and getting together with friends.

This experience kindled my passion to work with classroom teachers, parents, and students to help develop life-long learners and honorable leaders. My husband, Steve, and I have enjoyed raising our four children, including our youngest son who was in SkyView’s first graduating class.
