    Greetings! I am pleased to serve as the new proud principal of River Oaks Middle School. I was born in Prince George’s County, Maryland and have spent my life between there and Durham, North Carolina.  I am a product of Durham Public Schools. I graduated from North Carolina Central University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, and a Master of Administration in Executive Leadership from Gardner-Webb University. I am currently seeking my Doctoral Degree in Educational Leadership from High Point University. I am the middle daughter of five and have a wonderful daughter, Sydney. 

    I have served in many instructional roles, including assistant principal and principal in Prince George’s County Public Schools in Maryland, Durham Public Schools, and Guilford County Schools for over 23 years.

    I am truly excited to have joined both the Wake County Public School System and the River Oaks Middle School families! I look forward to serving and leading ROMS with LOVE.
