Born and raised in Boulder, Colorado (Yes I am a native!)
The “Traveling Bug” had bitten me at a VERY young age, and has been deeply rooted into my soul ever since! Aside from traveling the USA visiting “family and friends,” my family would travel to Mexico and camp on the beach with several other families annually during school spring breaks. Since then, I have had the amazing opportunities to travel to The Cayman Islands (twice), Australia (twice), Italy, Greece, Belgium, Germany, England, France,The Netherlands, Ireland, Wales, Switzerland, Austria, and Costa Rica. Many of these explorations have been experienced with local junior and high school students. Let the travels continue! I truly love the BEACH venues... coming from a “Colorado Native Perspective!” I love to walk, hike, swim, and explore our Global Community...which we ALL need to contribute to...personally, and in our classrooms!
Scott Miller (a Pagosa Springs Bus Driver for 11 years) and I have been married for 30 years and we have 3 amazing children with whom we spend much of our free time with!
A personal goal has been to reconnect with people I have met on these adventures and important friends and families from my past.
