I am so proud to be the principal of Millbrook, and I'm very excited to help build our new magnet theme of Environmental Connections! I grew up in Charlotte, NC, and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in journalism. Teaching was a second career for me, and I taught high school English at Camp Lejeune, NC and Garner High School in Wake County. I became an assistant principal because I wanted to make an impact on more teachers and students. I was the assistant principal at Selma Middle School in Johnston County, NC, and at Vance Elementary here in Wake County. I also served as principal at Hodge Road Elementary in Knightdale, opened Sanford Creek Elementary in Rolesville, and at East Wake High School of Integrated Technology. In 2010, I joined the charter network KIPP, and traveled the country before opening the first KIPP elementary school in Dallas, Texas. I came home to NC to lead Millbrook Elementary in 2015.
My husband John and I have a daughter, Victoria, and granddaughter, Olivia, as well as a rescue golden retriever named Kelly! In my free time, I love to attend Broadway musicals, read, and visit the mountains or the beach, where I love to take photographs.
Why I love working with kids...
I want students to be empowered to define their own destiny and be the change in the world.
Why I am excited about our theme, Environmental and Community Connections...
I look forward to seeing our students get outside the classroom walls and become scientists and community leaders who see how they can change the world!
