Work Experience

I have taught Health, Physical Education, and Life Skills from cradle to grave and have enjoyed every experience. My niche has been working with teens in crisis; equipping them with helpful tools to transition to the next stage in their development.


Health, wellness, movement, and being outdoors have been lifelong passions for me. These beautiful red rocks called me to move to Utah 6 years ago from a wonderful teaching career in New Hampshire. When I am not teaching, I can be found outdoors in this breathtaking environment.

Comments on DRA

I am thrilled to be teaching at DRA. Everyone from Administration, Faculty, Staff, to Students has been incredibly welcoming. I bring a hands-on, experiential approach to the classroom. It is a privilege to witness students have ‘ah-ha’ moments in their learning and begin to turn their lives around for the better. I appreciate that DRA is invested in each and every student’s success.
