Welcome Trailside Families!
I have countless memories working with so many families and LCPS staff members in our community. However, one of my fondest will surely be the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful families when the doors at Trailside opened eight years ago. I am so excited to be a part of the Trailside Middle School community as we begin our eigth year with an amzaing administration and staff.
My journey on the trail began in the fall of 2013 when I became a member of the TMS Parent Planning Council. For the past twelve years, I've had the honor of serving as Parent Liaison at Creighton's Corner Elementary School. This will be my eighth year proudly serving as the Parent Liaison at Trailside. I have a BS degree in Human Services and Counseling from Old Dominion University. My 35+ years of experience working in direct care and administration in the Human Services field provides me with a strong sense of the diverse needs of individuals and families in our community.
My son, Gabriel, attended Trailside all three years and graduted from SBHS in June! Gabriel is currently at Marine Corps Reserves boot camp in Parris Island, SC. He will come home in December and start George Washington University in January. My daughter, Ivana, also attended Trailside all three years. She is now starting her freshman year at Rock Ridge HS. We have lived in Ashburn for 17 years. I am originally from Pennsylvania and grew up in Northern Virginia. I enjoy cooking everything, creating outreach programs, special events planning, traveling, and journaling our adventures. Most of all, I love spending time with my family.
As the Parent Liaison at Trailside, it is my ongoing goal to remove any existing barriers for our students, families, and staff to ensure that everyone has the best academic day possible. I look forward to welcoming and providing support for all of our families at Trailside! Please contact me if you should need assistance. My door is always open!
