Life Before CEC:

When I graduated from college my dream was to work in the criminal justice system. I was fortunate to get a job as a clerk for a District Court Judge with the 18th Judicial District where I worked for 2 years. From there I moved to the District Attorney's office where I was a legal assistant for 2 years but realized that wasn't what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I knew I wanted to continue my education but in what? The most influential person in my life was my high school counselor and that is what propelled me to get my masters in school counseling. Before I joined the amazing staff at CEC I worked at Denver North High School for 2 years. I am blessed with an amazing husband and two wonderful kids who are in elementary school. I love CEC Middle College, students have the opportunity to DO SOMETHING REAL with their education both career and college. In my free time I enjoy running and have completed four marathons!
