I attended: University of Utah

What I love about Highland High: I love the diversity of all who are part of the Ram Fam and the rich tradition.

Despite being a proud Nevadan, I find myself often calling Utah home. I obtained my degree in journalism and was a member of the Women's Track/Cross Country Team for the University of Utah. As a proud alumna, I still am actively involved towards student-athlete development. Prior to teaching, I covered college football for ESPN and professional basketball for the NBA as a broadcast journalist. I still find myself working as a freelance journalist. Family is everything in my eyes and I couldn't imagine my life without them. Sports, music, writing and tasting new foods are some of my passions. My own personal journey helped influence my career change to teaching and coaching to inspire others that you can be a success, no matter the circumstances. Go Rams!
