Hi, I am ecstatic to be starting my 17th year in Loudoun County Public Schools and 11th year as a librarian. This is my second year at Trailside and I am excited about all of the new opportunities that are available. Prior to coming to Trailside, I was at Waterford Elementary as the Librarian for nine years. Before moving to the library I was a middle school math teacher at Belmont Ridge Middle and Harmony Middle.
I am a Loudoun native and I always knew that I wanted to come back to teach in Loudoun. While at Lovettsville Elementary, Blue Ridge Middle and Loudoun Valley High, I had some phenomenal teachers that shared their love for teaching and encouraged me to pursue education. After graduation, I attend Longwood University and received a Bachelors in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education. I began teaching and fell in love with reading young adult literature, so I went back to school to get my Masters in Library Science from Catholic University. I cannot wait to share my love of reading with the Trailside community!
I have been married for 15 years and have two daughters who are 9 and 5. My oldest is in the 4th grade and loves gymnastics, dance, music and art. My youngest is in preschool and loves being ACTIVE! They keep my husband and I busy, but bring us so much joy!
