I graduated from the University of Colorado Denver with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy with a minor in Political Science and a Master of Humanities with an option in Philosophy and Theory. For my masters, I studied the relationship between technology, progress, and the function of democracy in contemporary U.S.
Before I moved to Colorado in 1999, I attended Santa Barbara Community College and took part in a study abroad program to China and Vietnam. There I studied the belief systems and philosophy that shaped the political history of these areas. Some other interesting traveling I have done include organic farming in Ecuador, exploring the ancient ruins of Thailand, ascending the steps of the Teotihuacan pyramids outside of Mexico City, and jungle hiking on the eastern coast of Costa Rica.
My personal interests include hanging out with my daughter and husband, wandering around the mountains, growing plants, traveling, and expanding my music collection.
