I grew up in Colorado Springs and earned my BS in Psychology from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs in 2016. My experience working as a soccer coach at my alma mater, Vista Ridge High School, and at a psychiatric hospital showed me that I wanted to pursue a career working with kids. I later went on to complete my Masters in School Counseling from Northern Arizona University in 2019. Middle school comes with many unique challenges for students, and I’m looking forward to taking those challenges head on with the McAuliffe community. In my free time you can find me with my pup Rico, eating delicious Peruvian food, exercising, or watching soccer!
