I am a sarcastic and compassionate middle school teacher who loves learning with my students. I live in Denver where I enjoy a good hike and the gorgeous fall foliage. You can find me tackling a good DIY project on a Saturday or spending time with friends. I have had a love for writing since I was a teenager. Over the years I have filled over 25 journals with all the fun, messy, and crazy parts of my life. I know from personal experience that stories have the power to heal, and that is why I write!
