Greetings Timberwolves!

I am so excited to begin my fouth year here at Trailside! As the 7th grade dean, I look forward to supporting our students and families as we continue our middle school journey together. Working together as a team, we are sure to have a successful seventh grade year!

My own journey into Middle School Education began at Radford University where I earned a Bachelor’s of Science. I continued my quest for learning at George Mason University where I earned a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction as well as a Masters of Education in Education Leadership and Supervision.

I have more than 17 years of experience in Middle School Education teaching Reading, Math, Social Studies and Language Arts. Additionally, I have been a Technology Resource Teacher and a Middle School Dean at all three grade levels. These diverse experiences have helped me to grow personally and professionally.

I live in Ashburn with my husband, our three beautiful daughters and our boxer, Buddy. I love spending time cheering for my girls at dance competitions, soccer and softball games. When we have a break in our family schedule, we love connecting with one another, going on family hikes. I am also an avid Steeler fan and can be heard cheering on the amazing Pittsburgh Steelers. Go Black and Gold!!!

I am excited about the opportunities that this year has in store for our Timberwolves. Please know that I am happy to help you and your student with any questions or concerns you may have. Feel free to contact me at 571-252-2280 or e-mail at
