I have been in the field of Special Education for the last 45 years as a Speech Pathologist and Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. I started my career in Summit County where I was able to teach and ski which is one of my passions. Most of my career was spent in the Woodland Park School District for 25 years where I worked as a Speech Pathologist. I also established and taught in the PAL Program, a program for 3–5-year-old children with special needs. In my retirement years, I have gone back to being a Speech Pathologist and was blessed to be hired on at Roosevelt Charter Academy 7 years ago. This is a wonderful place to work because of the administration, colleagues and most importantly, the kids! In my spare time, I play lots of tennis, ski, travel, scrapbook, spend time with my three grandkids and teach Sunday School.
