Mrs. Golden was born in Alaska, raised in North Carolina, and has lived in Colorado for over 20 years. She graduated from Western Carolina University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English before marrying a Marine and moving to southern California. She and her CO native husband moved back to Golden to raise a family (still in process). After spending ten years homeschooling her three children, she and her family joined GVCA in its inaugural year. When she’s not substitute teaching at Golden View, she can be found tagging along with the Cross-Country and Track teams, taking pictures, reading to her children, hiking the mesa, volunteering with her congregation, building sets at the Arvada Center, or playing with her dogs, Mischief and Maggie.
