I have been working in education for the past 16 years; the last 3 years as principal at Liberty Elementary in the Marysville School District, in Marysville, WA. I started my career in 2004 as a 3rd grade teacher, and have taught multi-age and instructional support before becoming Dean of Students. I believe all students can learn and leave elementary school as well-rounded individuals ready to take on anything in front of them. I am a firm believer in using data to inform our work in student achievement and build learning systems that promote and support the whole child. We must be open to the ever-changing students we work with. Lastly, I love spending time with my family and playing as much golf as possible.. In my “free” time!
