Education/Background

I have been a lifelong resident of Northern Kentucky and grew up in the St. Paul Parish. I attended St. Paul for grades first through sixth; St. Henry for grades seventh and eighth and graduated from Notre Dame Academy in 1984. I attended Northern Kentucky University where I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics in 1989; a Master of Arts in Secondary Education in 1994 and a Rank I in Instructional Leadership in 2004.

Upon graduation from Northern Kentucky University in 1989, I was hired at Conner High School in Hebron, KY and taught Mathematics for sixteen years. In my tenure at Conner High School, I served as Mathematics Department Chair; was a presenter for “Kentucky High Schools that Work” and the “Southern Region Education Board;” was part of the teacher panel who worked with NKU in the development of the “American Diploma Project” and was a textbook reviewer for Thompson Publishing.

In July of 2005, I made the transition to my administration career as the Assistant Principal at Camp Ernst Middle School. It was the year the school had opened and it was a unique experience to begin a new career in a new school. In July of 2014, I was named the Principal of Walton-Verona High School where I remained through June of 2020. During my time at Walton-Verona High School, I served on the NKU School Based Scholar Advisory Committee, the NKU Principal Advisory Committee and the Notre Dame Academy Education and Technology Committee.

I am excited to return to St. Paul School to serve as the Principal. I have many fond memories of growing up in this Parish and have maintained many friendships that began as a student at St. Paul School. I currently live in Florence, KY with my husband Scott. Together we have five children, two of whom still live at home, one son-in-law and one granddaughter. In my spare time, I enjoy sewing, spending time with family and friends and watching the Cincinnati Reds!
