    Principal's Assistant
    I am excited to join the Bear Creek staff this year and I enjoy working with such an amazing staff and community! My three children attended Bear Creek and I spent many years on the PTO board. Now I am enjoying my work in the front office! My favorite part of the school year is the Bear Creek Carnival. I love seeing all of our families coming together to enjoy this big community event every September.

    I am orginally from Michigan and I travel back every summer to visit family and spend time on the lake. My husband and I are both University of Michigan graduates and we enjoy rooting for the Wolverines. Our three girls were all born in Seattle, where we lived for 11 years before deciding to move to a sunnier locale here in South Boulder. I'm a bit of a nerd so my favorite books are The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis. My kids and I have been attending the Denver Pop Culture Con for the last few summers, and its a fun geekfest that I would highly recommend! I enjoy watching movies with my family (although we all agree that the book is always better!), running, walking my dog Lola, skiing, and spending time visiting friends and family around the country. My favorite trip was a running adventure in Scotland on the West Highland Trail. There are parts of Edinborough that make you feel like you've stepped right into a Harry Potter story!
