Why I work at Impact on Education
Having spent the majority of my career in high tech, I always felt that I was missing opportunities to “give back” to my community.  In addition to chairing numerous school fundraising events over the past 10 years, I began volunteering with Impact on Education in 2018. I knew immediately that this foundation was the place that I could do exactly that, “give back”. I hit the jackpot when my volunteer role at Impact on Education turned into a career that would enable me to support the children in our local public school system, and help make changes in our student’s lives to ensure that they are given the resources they need and deserve to be successful.

What makes me smile
Listening to my children’s laughter, spending time in the mountains, knowing that I am caring for myself mentally and physically.

Importance of education
Education goes far beyond shaping us as individuals. It helps us become better citizens and helps us build better societies. Our teachers guide our students through academics, while also cultivating a lifelong desire to learn and grow, in a safe environment. I am in awe of the teachers and staff in our District, and want nothing more than to support them in any way I can.

More about me
I’m a Colorado native, and I’m head over heels in love with our beautiful State. I lived in the Bay Area for over 16 years, but knew it was time to come home when I married and had children. Our family moved to the Boulder area in 2016, and we’ve embraced all that Colorado has to offer. I love to ski, SUP, hike and spend time outdoors with my family. My husband and I have 2 incredible children, 3 cats, 1 english bulldog and 2 hermit crabs. There is never a dull moment in my home, and I absolutely love it!
