    Hello Freshman and Sophomore parents and welcome to 9th and 10th Grade English! I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Secondary Education and a Masters in the Art of Teaching. GO DUKES! Prior to teaching here at Briar Woods, I taught for three years at Loudoun Valley High School. This is my second year teaching at Briar Woods and I couldn't be happier to be back teaching at my alma mater! In my spare time, I'm the Varsity Golf Coach, Sophomore Class Sponsor, Literary Magazine Sponsor (The Talon), and the Freshman Girls Basketball coach.  I look forward to an exciting 2019-2020 school year!


    In my spare time, I try to stay as active as possible. I enjoy going for exercising (running, hiking, playing golf), watching college football (Go Canes/Dukes), napping, and binge watching Netflix. This March, my fiance and I will be welcoming a new member to our wolfpack; a Siberian Husky named Scout!
