I grew up in Salt Lake City Utah, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains where I graduated from the University of Utah. Life has taken me from there, to Southern California, then across the United States to Northern Virginia where I was able to attend graduate school through Liberty University in Lynchburg. My husband, and our three kids enjoy the beach, outdoor activities, watching good movies, and eating good food. This is my third year with Smart's Mill Middle School, and my seventh with Loudoun County. As the head of the Special Education department at our school I am looking forward to working with students/families and supporting our amazing team of teachers.
