    Welcome to Pinebrook Elementary School. I joined the PNB family in the fall of 2021 as the Dean of Special Education.

    Prior to becoming a Dean, I taught special education programs for students with autism for LCPS, along with teaching our special education summer programs for the extended school year. I am currently studying to receive my Doctorate in Education with a focus in Educational Leadership at Liberty University with an expected graduation date of Fall 2023. Prior to starting my doctorate, I received my Master's Degree in Teaching and Learning specializing in elementary education from Liberty University. During my undergraduate studies, I attended Westminster College in Pennsylvania, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree and two certifications in special education and general education.

    When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family and our dog Scout! My favorite hobbies are cooking, spending time outside, volunteering at my church, and doing many crafting projects at home with fiber arts and flower preservation.
