I am a Colorado native. I went to college at the University of Wyoming on an academic scholarship, and studied there for two years. I then moved to Kansas City and finished my education at Ottawa University. I worked for Yia Yia's restaurant for many years while going to school, and after graduation, decided to continue working as a corporate trainer, which took me to St. Louis for a year. I moved back to Colorado and pursued my teaching career. I taught in Aurora for 2 1/2 years in grades 4 and 5 and then moved on to Timber Trail and have been here ever since. I completed my masters in 2005 and have taught in Douglas County for 9 years.
My husbands's name is Lance and we've been married since 2005. We have two children together, Makenna and Gunner.
When I'm not at school, I spend my time with my family. We love the outdoors- We play at the park a lot. I really enjoy my time off with them- there were a lot of "firsts" we experienced together recently: first motorcycle ride, planting a garden, swimming...We took our first camping trip last summer! Not quite what I had dreamed it would be :( But are giving it another shot soon...
I have a love for live music, and LIONEL RICHIE! I love to listen to music and paint when I have the time.
As you may know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 2008 while pregnant with my son, Gunner. After 16 rounds of chemotherapy and 24 sessions of radiation, I finished all of my treatment at the end of October of 2009. Each day is truly a blessing- I'm so fortunate to be where I am today! In June, 2011, I had the last of my reconstructive surgeries and finally have begun walking away from breast cancer!
Love the beach!
Getting ready to go tubing down the river!
My husband, Lance, and me
love ya Lionel!!
B-Resilient—Integrityby Carol Moehrle, RN, BSN
Have the courage to say no.
–W. Clement Stone
Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. Do you live each day with truth and honesty? Do you find these to be your core values? We sometimes need to be reminded how critical integrity is in our daily lives.
No one else gives you your moral values or your personal integrity. We reach within for these standards of living. Each day, have the courage to face the truth and do what's right. Begin each day with a positive affirmation that reminds you to live life with integrity.
