    I am a Colorado native and grew up in a small town out east raising horses, sheep and chickens. My family and I currently live in Parker. My two children, Claire and Jack, attended Primrose since infancy. I firmly believe their time spent at Primrose developed their strong education background and love for school!

    I received my Bachelors Degree in Human Development and Early Childhood Education from Metropolitan State University of Denver. I have been in the Early Childhood field for over 18 years and I have been the Director at the Primrose School at Lowry since we opened. I look forward to watching our students grow and learn each day and building relationships with our families.
