My career in public education began in central Ohio, teaching 3rd grade and gifted education.  In my 30 years as an educator, I have served as a general education and gifted education teacher in grades K-5; directed TCSD’s gifted education program; Director of Curriculum & Instruction; Principal of Wilson, Alta, Kelly, and Moran Schools; Director of Teaching and Learning; co-Principal of Colter School; and JES/CES Reconfiguration Project Lead. 

 I am thrilled to begin my 6th year at Jackson Elementary, and am honored to serve the students, teachers, and parents as Principal.  I believe ALL students can learn in a safe and caring environment in concert with a dynamic and high-quality teacher, and through my leadership I will work with teachers and families to ensure our students are learning, and love to come to JES to learn!  

My husband, Greg, is a 7th and 8th grade history teacher at Jackson Middle School, and I have 2 children in TCSD schools.  As a family, we enjoy biking, camping, and Nordic and downhill skiing together.
