Board Member

Las Vegas has always been home to me! I was born and raised here and continue to call it home. I attended the University of Nevada Las Vegas and received my Bachelor’s of Arts in Elementary Education in 2002. In 2005, I went on to earn my Master’s Degree at UNLV in Curriculum and Instruction in Mathematical Education. I also earned 32 credits beyond my Master’s Degree and earned my credentials in Gifted and Talented Education in 2007. I taught for 12 years with CCSD, then resigned for 5 years to be at home with my two young sons. During that time, I helped get the Gifted and Talented Program started at Doral Academy and was the GATE teacher at Cactus Campus for a year. In 2019, I started a full-time GATE teaching position with CCSD.

My husband Craig is also an educator and we have two wonderful sons! I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, cooking, watching movies, camping, and being involved with my boys’ education and extracurricular activities.
