I am a graduate of the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree in Child and Family Development. I also have my Master of Arts for Teachers Degree from UGA. I graduated from the program in December, 2010 with reading, math, and language endorsements. I was very lucky to receive such a wonderful education at UGA over the years and was even luckier to begin my career at a school as special as St. Joseph Catholic School as an intern and paraprofessional. I started the Pre-K Program here in the fall of 2009. After 5 amazing years with the littles, I was so honored to make the move to First Grade! Last year, I started an Educational Leadership program at The University of West Georgia. I feel so privileged to have grown personally and professionally in the SJS family during my time here and cannot wait to continue the journey!
I am thrilled to be the interim principal this school year! I hope to nurture our community to grow in faith and family; never forgetting that the students are at the center of everything we do.
I am also the Green School Coordinator here at SJS. I get to live my passions for recycling, composting, waste reduction, beautification and bettering the future in this role. It's a pleasure to work with my peers to reach these goals together!
In addition to teaching, I love spending time outside in almost any capacity. I play softball with a team that's been together for about 7 years! I like to work on my house and am always trying to become a better cook. I love everything Athens has to offer, especially all of the wonderful music and delicious restaurants. I love to volunteer and serve as the Chairperson for Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful - a wonderful organization that serves our community! I also volunteer as a Georgia Master Composter, educating citizens in Athens about all of the ways they can help our earth!
