After graduating from the University of South Dakota in December 2014, I moved to Taos to work in the ski industry. I had never been to Taos and pulling up to my new casita with a bright blue door against a majestic mountain backdrop felt very magical. That very first night it snowed almost 2 feet and I experienced my first powder day at TSV. After moving back to South Dakota and teaching for several years, I had a strong desire to move back to Taos. I was hired by Taos Academy Charter School in 2019. It has been a joy teaching in Taos and serving the community. I enjoy skiing, hiking, painting, traveling, spending time with friends, and camping with my husband and dog.
