 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 excited to serve as the Assistant Principal of North Ridge!

I have been working in Wake County since 2005. I have served as an Instructional Facilitator, Intervention Coordinator, and taught middle level Science and Science electives for thirteen years. These roles have played an important part in the leader I am today. I believe relationships come first and all students can succeed.

I have an 11 year old daughter. We recently became pet owners to a miniature schnauzer named Ruby. I enjoy spending time with my family and look forward to our annual Christmas beach trip. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the movies, reading, traveling, and watching sports. I am a proud Clemson University alumni and love all things Clemson.

I am thankful to be a part of the Unicorn family. I look forward to serving and working with each and every one of you.
