I was born in Washington D.C. but grew up in Denver, and am a graduate of CU Boulder with a degree in international affairs with a geographic concentration in Latin America.  I was a long time user of Young Americans Bank until they kicked me out at 21.  Happens to us all!  In my free time I love to play and coach youth soccer for a local nonprofit soccer club.

I am excited to interact with the kids during Young AmeriTowne and International Towne and I love helping them learn!

I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Littleton.  I went to school at University of Puget Sound in Washington state.  During my free time I like to go skiing, camping, hiking and rock climbing – I love the outdoors!  I remember being a radio DJ in Young AmeriTowne when I was in 5th grade.

The thing I most look forward to is seeing all of the kids so excited every day they come into Towne!

A recent transplant to Colorado, I’m super excited to be working here at Young Americans!  I was a Political Science and Theater double major at Colgate University in Central New York State, so Denver’s 300+ days of sun has been a wonderful new addition to my life (not to mention actual mountains!).  During college I worked at the Center for Outreach and Volunteerism Education, which gave me exposure to a variety of non-profits in the Upstate region and my passion for mission driven work.  My past experience with kids includes being a counselor at a summer Theater and Film camp for kids with high functioning autism and Asperger’s syndrome, teaching German to elementary school students and one-on-one tutoring in reading.

I love the sense of wonder embedded in how kids look at the world, which is why I enjoy working with them so much. Their experiences at Young Americans are a great example of this.
