I was born in Michigan, and I got my degree in communications and Spanish from the University of Michigan. I moved here only a year ago from Miami where I had been for the past 13 years. The idea of living in a place with four seasons appealed to my husband, and I. We made a list of places to move to, and the Denver area was on both of our lists. We fell in love with this location.
I’m starting to get into winter sports, and I recently tore up the bunny hills. I got some snow shoes for Christmas, and I have my eye on exploring Bear Creek Lake Park. I want to meet new people in Lakewood.
I was a private tutor for years and years and years, and then I worked as a sales rep for Pearson Education. I liked working on the business side, but I missed teaching. My husband and I were always interested in opening up a business, and that’s why we opened up Mathnasium of Lakewood.
A gym for math
Like a gymnasium, kids get a personal trainer for math. I have just over 40 kids who come to our Mathnasium, but I would like to get up to 100 kids. I help kindergarten through 12th graders, but right now, middle schoolers and high schoolers are the majority of our kids.
Kids come in, take an assessment, and based on results, we create a customized plan to help them understand math better.
The program is so rewarding in itself. The thing that makes my job so fun is that the kids are having fun. It warms my heart to see the kids having fun. They want to be here, and they’re getting better at math.
