This will be my 14th year of teaching at Air Academy. Before that, I taught 6th and 7th graders for four years at Eagleview Middle School.
In addition to teaching I have also been both the head and assistant coach for the Air Academy Hockey Team for 20 years.
I grew up in Colorado Springs and attended both Air Academy Junior High and Air Academy High School (graduating class of 1982).
I attended UCCS and graduated with a degree in Accounting. I then received my MBA from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.
From there, I worked for the oil company CONOCO for almost 11 years. During those years, I spent time in Ponca City, Oklahoma, Midland and Houston, Texas. Along the way I made stops in New Orleans and Farmington, NM. I left CONOCO, received my Teaching Certificate from UCCS, completed my student teaching at Widefield High School and began coaching Air Academy Hockey before being hired to teach at Eagleview Middle School.
