Mrs. Ziel majored in Physical Education and Health at Elmhurst College, just outside of Chicago, IL. She participated in soccer all four years as well as track and field.
She taught P.E. and Health for one year at a rural school in Illinois, as well as being the Athletic Director. She and her husband relocated to Colorado in 2014 to pursue a more active and outdoorsy lifestyle. Since living in Colorado, she has coached soccer at the club and high school levels, as well as taught swimming lessons to kids of all ages, which she has been doing for 12 years.
In her free time she enjoys kickboxing, playing soccer, hiking, and spending time with her family. She is excited to be starting her second year at LCS and change things up by moving exclusively to the Academy and teaching high school Health in addition to Physical Education.
