• This will be my third year teaching SEARCH and FUSION at Horizon Elementary. Before that, I taught 3rd grade at Pinebrook Elementary for 9 years, and shared my time with Countryside for a bit.  Being full time at Horizon again is a dream!
    • I grew up in Austin, TX and also spent several years living in North Carolina. These two states created my love for delicious BBQ, live music, football, and summertime.
    • My husband, Eric and I live in Centreville with our animals Shinyboots & Leela.
    • When I'm not in the classroom, my husband and I like to cook, listen to music, attend concerts, watch sports, and be outside as much as possible. We also own and operate a mobile coffee trailer Caffeine Machine VA! 
    • I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my B.S. in Elementary Education and also took graduate classes at UVA!
    •  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE football! I am a huge ECU Pirates fan and always make at least one game per season! GO PIRATES! 
    • Hailing from Texas, I am also a Cowboys fan which creates a little tension in the house since my husband is a Washington Commanders fan!
    Some favorites of mine:
    Food - Chips & Guacamole and TACOS
    Drink - Lattes or Half-sweet tea
    Store - TARGET
    Music - anything I can sing to but love some good 90s country and 90s/2000s pop
    Sweet Treat - Coffee ice cream or Oreos
    I feel honored to be working with the incredible students, teachers, and families of the Horizon community, and I am so excited to be a part of sculpting young minds!  Let's make it a fantastic year together!
