What a privilege to be a part of such a great school.  Mountain View has such a wonderful staff and community.  I am eager to engage with students supporting them academically as well as with life skills to be life long learners and productive citizens in society. 

My early professional years included teaching kindergarten in Wisconsin and Oklahoma.  After staying home to raise children I came to Cobb and taught for many years at Davis Elementary teaching fourth and fifth grades.  From there I served as Assistant Principal at Kincaid Elementary.  I received my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from University of Wisconsin-Stout, Masters Degree in Ed. Leadership from Kennesaw State and Specialist Degree in Ed. Leadership from Georgia College and State University.

I have two children who are products of the Cobb County School System.  I am so fortunate to have my daughter, son/daughter-in-law and precious granddaughter live in the area to spend time with.  I also love being outside and enjoying nature.

I look forward to supporting and cultivating a positive environment where all students have a pathway for success.

I am so excited to be a part of such an amazing staff and community here at Mountain View! I look forward to partnering with teachers, staff, parents and students to ensure that every day each student has a phenomenal experience at school!

After graduating from the University of Georgia, I began my career as a middle school teacher. That time in my career created some of the most special memories and bonds, as I believe middle school students are not to be feared but embraced! Soon my family began to grow and I moved to Murdock Elementary and taught 4th and 5th grade. I then became a Specialized Instruction Consultant for CCSD until I became the Assistant Principal at Rocky Mount Elementary, and then Eastvalley Elementary.

I have two amazing girls, one is in high school and the other attends Mercer University. We are busy with all things sports in our house, from watching the younger one play soccer, to supporting the other in athletic training to attending Atlanta’s many professional teams!
