Biographical Sketch

I am a native of Colorado. I grew up in Greeley then went to CSU to get my Masters in Audiology. I met my husband at CSU and we raised four boys.  I started working at Traut in the media center part time while three of my sons were attending Traut, in 2006. When I was hired as an interventionist, I discovered my passion for helping struggling readers. In 2019 I became a Certified Academic Language Therapist , with a focus on Dyslexia.

What I like about Traut is

My husband and I were drawn to Traut as parents because of the sequence and intensity that the core knowledge curriculum provides. 

Hobbies & Interests

I enjoy spinning, swimming, hiking, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. 

My favorite books and authors are

Overcoming Dyslexia by Sally Shaywitz

The Dyslexic Empowerment Plan by Ben Foss

Reader, Come Home by MaryAnne Wolfe
