I am so excited and honored to begin my role as the Assistant Principal at Blue Ridge Elementary School for the 2022-2023 school year. I have been an educator for 21 years teaching in both Gilmer County and Fannin County, grades ranging from 1st through 8th with the majority of my years spent teaching 4th grade Math. Blue Ridge Elementary holds a very special place in my heart being the place my children attended and the school I have been part of for the last 17 years. I am proud to be a BEAR. 


In 1993 I received my undergraduate degree from Western Carolina University in Business Accounting. I quickly realized that this was not where my heart was and decided to pursue my Master of Arts in Teaching from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. I later received my Educational Specialist in Administration and Supervision from Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee. 


I have two sons who came through Blue Ridge Elementary and went on to graduate from Fannin County High School. Ethan recently graduated from Georgia Tech with an Electrical Engineering Degree and works for an Engineering firm in Kennesaw Georgia. Evan is in his last year of nursing school at Kennesaw State University. 


Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I enjoy watching most every sport and exercising to stay healthy.
