 Serving as principal of North Ridge is a great privilege. Co-laboring with such a fantastic group of teachers, students, and parents is a great delight.

 I have been working in Wake County Public Schools since 1994. I taught 2nd and 3rd grade for 8 years before pursuing school administration. I then served as an assistant principal for 6 years, most recently at Martin Middle. While I enjoy middle school, I was thrilled to return to my first love: elementary school in November of 2010.

 I have been happily married since 1993 and have 5 children. I enjoy my time with my family: eating nightly dinners together, going on walks, riding bikes, and vacationing. My hobbies include home remodeling, being outdoors, snowboarding, and skateboarding.

 North Ridge is a fantastic school and I look forward to a future of building on our successes.

I am thrilled to serve as the Assistant Principal of North Ridge!

I have worked in Wake County schools since 2004. Throughout the years I’ve served in many capacities, but all at the elementary level. My experience includes almost nine years of teaching 4th and 5th grade, two years as a Response to Instruction Coach, and most recently, supporting schools as a Multi Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) Coach for the Southern Region’s Elementary schools. All of these roles have played a significant part in shaping the leader that I am today.

I have been happily married for 4 years and have one daughter. As a family, we enjoy traveling, spending time at the beach, and playing with our dogs. Some of my hobbies include scrapbooking, baking, and shopping!

I am so excited to begin this journey in educational leadership, and look forward to the opportunity to serve the students, families, and staff here at North Ridge Elementary.
