I am thrilled to start another year as your Principal at Lovettsville Elementary School. I am a native New Yorker but have lived in Loudoun County since moving from Portland, Oregon to Virginia. My daughters are both graduates of Loudoun County Public Schools. This summer, Zoe, my oldest daughter, started her second year as a student in the Physician’s Assistant program of studies at Shenandoah University. My youngest daughter Sophia will be a senior at Virginia Tech after spending the summer in Blacksburg working on a research project.
My career in education started in Loudoun County over 18 years ago, when I switched careers from Human Resources and Recruiting to Education. I was a teacher at both Ashburn Elementary and Tolbert Elementary before I transitioned to the Dean position at Liberty Elementary in South Riding. I was the Assistant Principal at Sycolin Creek Elementary School for 5 years before becoming the Principal here at Lovettsville Elementary School last year.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Economics from SUNY Oneonta; a Masters of Elementary Education from Marymount University; and a Masters in Educational Leadership from George Mason University. As your Principal, one of my goals continues to focus on being an effective instructional leader where students develop to their fullest potential under the rigorous academic leadership of our dedicated teaching staff. I believe a positive and dynamic school environment can be created by building relationships with all members of the school community. My focus will be to continue to build strong relationships with our students, the staff, and parents that comprise the Lovettsville community. I’m looking forward to another amazing year at Lovettsville Elementary School!

I love spending time with the students here at Lovettsville and watching them learn new things each day. I look forward to working collaboratively with our staff, the community and our families to meet the needs of all of our students. Communication is the key, so I encourage you to reach out to the staff or administration with any questions, concerns, or ideas. Together we will have a fantastic school year, helping our students meet their full potential.
