I began my educational career in 2000 as a teacher's aide for the HeadStart preschool program in Charlotte County. This is where I quickly realized that enriching children's lives through education was the right career path for me. I eventually went back to school to earn my bachelors degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Florida in 2006.  I was lucky at that time to be able to stay home with my own children and substitute teach part time.  I began my full-time career here at Englewood Elementary in 2012.

My husband, Jeremy and I have two active boys. Both our boys enjoy playing many local sports including soccer, basketball, baseball, and golf. Just recently the boys began taking guitar lessons. As a family we love spending time together. Our favorite past time is boating, whether it is fishing or water sports it seems like we cannot get out on the water enough.
In my classroom, you will find a warm welcoming, positive, active classroom environment. Every year is an excellent learning experience.
