Dear Holly Grove Elementary Parents and Families,

It is with great excitement and anticipation that I share this brief introduction with you.  I consider it an honor and a privilege to serve as the Principal of Holly Grove Elementary and I look forward to working with you to continue the many great traditions that have distinguished our school over the years.

I was born and raised in Greece and moved to the US to advance my education in 1979. Since then I consider myself a native and although I deeply love my Greek heritage and background I take great pride in calling myself an American and consider North Carolina my home.

My educational career spans many years, States and countries; yet my love and passion for what I do remain the same as my first day as a new teacher!

After graduating from North Carolina State University with my masters in School administration, I began my Wake County career and my administrative journey at Davis Drive Elementary where I served as an Assistant Principal for 9 years. In May of 2009, I transferred to Mills Park Elementary as an Assistant Principal to learn the intricacies of running a Year Round School. In September of 2012, I was appointed to be the Principal of Washington GT Magnet Elementary School and remained there until my good fortune brought me to Holly Grove Elementary in July of 2014.  

My professional and personal experiences have afforded me a unique perspective into the preK-12 experience and have prepared me to support students, parents, and teachers.

While not at school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the beach, movies, theater, concerts, traveling, and being a part of my extended church family.
