An Original Grizzly...


I was born and raised in Arizona.  My husband Keith and I met in Flagstaff, Arizona, while at Northern Arizona Univesity; we were married in 1976.  We moved to Colorado in 1985. Our family includes three children, their spouses, and six grandchildren.  I am addicted to golf, love to cook, garden, and do needlework.


My role as the coordinator of the STEM Academy has allowed me to work with students across the Northridge community and to support them in their pursuit of a rigorous and purposeful academic path in STEM.  I believe that educating students is about removing barriers to their growth.  It's helping each student see and believe that they can choose their way through this world and that their greatest opportunities for growth will come from the everyday challenges and failures that we all experience.
