    Welcome Horizon students, staff, families, and friends!

    I am delighted to be serving as the Assistant Principal at Horizon Elementary School for the 2023-2024 school year.  This will be my second year at Horizon and my fourth year as Assistant Principal in LCPS.  Prior to Horizon, I was the Assistant Principal of Belmont Station Elementary School in Ashburn, Virginia.  I am starting my 13th year in Loudoun County Public Schools.  Over that period, I spent my time at Belmont Station serving as a Special Education Teacher in multiple grade levels, Special Education Designee, Dean, and Assistant Principal. 

    I am a product of Loudoun County Public Schools, graduating from Loudoun Valley High School in 2005.  I crossed over the mountains and attended West Virginia University.  From WVU, I earned my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Elementary Education, specializing in Special Education and Early Childhood with additional endorsements in Math and Autism.  Most recently I received a second Master’s Degree in Administration from Shenandoah University in 2019. 

    My years of experience in elementary education have helped me acquire the tools needed to support all students, parents, and staff here at Horizon Elementary School.  I believe that great administrators hire educators who strive each day to make the best decisions for children.  When our students are at the center of all decisions, we can work together with mutual trust and cooperation between the parents, the community, and school.

    I look forward to working with the Horizon staff and community to offer a rigorous curriculum that incorporates technology and a variety of higher-level learning experiences to ensure our students are getting the most out of their time with us.  We want all our students to work to their maximum potential and I truly believe that we can reach all learners through a differentiated approach to instruction, offering both interventions and enrichment.  I know we will be amazed when we empower our students to achieve even more than they think is possible!

    In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, hiking, enjoying all that Loudoun County has to offer and eating out (particularly Mexican food).  I also enjoy heading to the Deep Creek area during all four seasons.  As college football and basketball seasons arrive, you will find me wearing my "blue and gold" and cheering on my beloved Mountaineers. Let's go…..Mountaineers!!

    I believe communication is an imperative part of being a successful school leader, so please feel free to contact me.  I am looking forward to making this school year a memorable one!  #WeSoarTogether!
