Hello, Riverside! I sure do love being a part of the Riverside family! Before I moved over to Montrose Avenue (during the summer of 2019), I spent three years working as an administrator at Max S. Hayes High School. I loved my time with the Max Hayes Lakers, but I am beyond happy to be back in a PreK-8 setting. Let me tell you a little bit more about me. I was born and raised in Detroit, but I’ve been living in Cleveland since 1999. I have an awesome son named Griffin and an amazing daughter named Delaney. I also have a wonderful husband named Mark. He works at Case Western Reserve University. I have degrees from Eastern Michigan University, Murray State University, and Cleveland State University. Before becoming an administrator, I spent over thirteen years teaching. I love iced tea, cheeseburgers, and watermelon. I also love sunflowers and rather than having one favorite color, I love all things rainbow! When I was in my twenties I spent three summers working at Cedar Point. In the summer of 2019 my family rescued a mini dachshund named LiliBug. She is our first family dog and she weighs all of ten pounds. For me, life is about soaking it all in and learning as much as possible. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with each and every Riverside scholar, educator, and family! Go Owls! #OwlStrong
