Beckie Munoz, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
I was born in Arizona, but grew up in Colorado Springs. I have lived in upstate New York and East Tennessee, but have been back in Colorado Springs since 2003. Most recently, I was working as a Graduate Assistant, as the Event Coordinator for the College of Education. Prior to that I was the Business Manager for Student Media at UCCS. My husband, Andy, and I have four awesome kids, and 3 fur-babies. I am finishing my Masters Degree, in Leadership, with an emphasis in Student Affairs in Higher Education, graduating in May 2021. I am also an avid hockey fan. I follow the Pittsburgh Penguins, Carolina Hurricanes, and Colorado College. I am very excited to be a part of LAS and the Chem/Biochem Department.

I have worked in the education field of Colorado Springs for 21 years as a Spanish teacher (elementary, middle & high school & higher education), Registrar, Executive Assistant, Principal’s Secretary, and Administrative Assistant. I worked for Colorado College for a total of 13 years as an Administrative Assistant. Outside work, I dedicate my life to my family. I am married to a US Air Force Retired Master Sargent with three children and three rescued dogs. I enjoy watching movies with my family. Fascinated by the Roman & Egyptian cultures and countries, I especially enjoy watching documentaries and shows about these places. I am in love with Italy and will go to Egypt someday.
