My first three years at Jackson were spent teaching 5th grade.  I have served as Jackson's Reading Coach for the past 5 years. I hold weekly Data Team meetings with all grade levels and assist teachers in their daily teaching of reading instruction. I have a passion for teaching and inspiring others.

I grew up in Rochester, New York and moved to Charlotte, NC after graduating from college. I married my husband, Michael in 2009 and moved to Camden. We have three beautiful children; William, Anna and Bradely. They are the light of our life.
