I would describe myself as a servant leader. Throughout my 18 years in education, I have been fueled by finding solutions. There is always a way. This passion has taken me many directions. From working in various classroom environments, collaborating with equally passionate educators and administrators, facilitating outdoor adaptive recreation programs, to exploring numerous platforms for delivering transition services for students with disabilities, my focus has been on helping others feel successful. My desire is to form lasting partnerships within our communities and coordinate cohesive relationships between our schools and families where students can truly thrive in preparing for life after high school.
