I’ve been in education for about 15 years. This is my 10th at Manual.  Did not teach all of 15 years but worked in schools and finally found my teaching legs when I started studying nutrition. I have a BA in Psychology and Communication Disorders from Luther College.  And I am a certified Master Nutrition Therapist.  I studied nutrition here in Denver at the Nutrition Therapy Institute.  I grew up in a little town called Mondovi, Wisconsin but have called Denver home since 1997.  

I love trying new foods, especially while traveling.  It’s a great way to learn about another culture.  I also enjoy trail running.  I am currently a foster mom and learning a TON about parenting.  I am gaining new insights as a teacher because of it.
