Born and raised in North Carolina. I studied in the medical field and criminal justice field until finding my place here in education. I love helping others and being part of the SLES family. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, reading, and relaxing.
I am a proud Wake County native and graduate from Wake County Public School System. I am originally from Apex, NC. This is my first year as an Assistant Principal, and I am going into my eighth year in education. Previously I was Principal Intern at Washington GT Elementary, a magnet school in downtown Raleigh. Prior to Washington, I taught sixth grade Social Studies & Language Arts at Moore Square Magnet Middle School, and fourth grade at Brier Creek Elementary. I had a short stint abroad, teaching high school Social Studies in South Korea. I greatly value growth, connection and service. It is my hope to partner with parents and students to create the best learning environment for all of our Sea Turtles! In my spare time I enjoy exploring new places and restaurants around the Triangle, spending quality time with family and friends, and I love to run, walk and hike at the parks and local greenways. I look forward to partnering with you serving the South Lakes Elementary School family this year!
