I am truly honored to be the principal of THE South Cobb High School, a pillar in the Austell community for over sixty years.  It is my privilege to work alongside a dedicated staff and flourishing community to ensure our students are ultimately positioned for success.  We will continue to always put our students first and cultivate a school culture rich with academic excellence and strong positive relationships.  I will continue to foster a healthy collaboration among all stakeholders in this next year for THE South Cobb High School.

I have served with the Cobb County School District since 2008 as a Math teacher at Garrett Middle School, an Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Pebblebrook High School, and as an Assistant Principal at Dickerson Middle School.  I look forward to continuing this journey of working with students, staff, and community members to foster an engaging, learning atmosphere.
