I am so excited to be joining the students, families, and staff at Weddington Hills Elementary. I’m originally from New York, obtaining my Bachelor of Arts Degree from St. John Fisher College. My family and I relocated to North Carolina in 2013 where I started my journey in public education. I obtained my Masters Degree in Special Education from Appalachian State University while I started my teaching career in Craven County. I was a special education teacher for several years before transitioning into general education. Finding my passion as an advocate for students and families, I decided to go back to school for School Administration through Western Carolina University. I began my journey in school administration in 2021 as the assistant principal in Craven County. After meeting my husband, we moved to the Charlotte area and I joined the Cabarrus County Schools family as an assistant principal at Hickory Ridge Elementary School. I look forward to meeting & working with the WHES students, staff, and community with this next chapter in my career!

I am married to my wonderful husband, Tim, and we have a sweet little girl, Brynlee, and two fur babies - Tony and Bennett. In my free time, I love to read, craft, go to the beach, and enjoy all the family time I can!
