* BIO: I grew up in the NEK and feel blessed to have been part of this amazing community. For the past 18 years, I have worked at Charleston Elementary School first as their school counselor and for the past five years I have been their principal. I am excited to embark on this new journey with Lake Region. Having had the pleasure of being around several of LR’s high school athlete’s over the past several years, I have been impressed with their level of sportsmanship as well as their competitive effort.

One thing that brings me joy and satisfaction in my life is the notion of “Paying It Forward”. The thrill of doing something nice and completely unexpected is a great way to remind us all that there is still a world full of kindness and generosity out there. I have learned from experience that when we do an act of kindness for others we know or for strangers, it’s only a matter of time before that kindness comes back to us. Being kind is a gift that gives both to the giver and the receiver. Call it “what goes around comes around”. A kindness keeps moving out into the world.

I am truly excited to join such an amazing group of dedicated professionals here at LR. I look forward to spending time with the students and hope to help them set and achieve dreams during their four years at LR.

 

* INTERESTS: My interests are first spending time with family and friends. Over the years I love watching my boys play sports. I like to walk and take in the world around me. I like reading a good book. Finally, I like the journey of growing who I am as a person, learning skillful means in order to navigate my life in a productive and compassionate way, and of course finding opportunities to “pay it forward”.
