A native of Colorado, I was raised in Westminster and graduated from Ranum HS in 1971. My four children all attended Adams 12 schools as do 2 of my 7 grandchildren. Three more are in a different school district and one is in her third year of college!! I spent 25+ years in the private sector before joining McElwain in August 2004 as Office Manager. Joining the awesome team at McElwain in 2004 I have learned that the educational climate is quite different from the private sector. I really enjoy the challenge and interaction involved in sponsoring the Student Ambassadors and Green Team Clubs, and soon to be "Steggie Press" a student written newsletter....the kids are awesome! I very much enjoy the children and the staff at McElwain and can't imagine working anywhere else until I retire. During our off time my husband, now retired, and I like to camp and hit the outdoor markets. He fishes while I read. When we can't get to the mountains, I spend my down time reading, playing in the garden, sewing or doing things with the grandkids.
