  • About Me

    I have been an educator since 2006 and have taught at the elementary and high school levels.  I came to JHHS last year after teaching for 10+ years in North Carolina.  My expertise is in Literacy and Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies.  I love working with Handley's amazing young adults and enjoy all they have to offer the school and community.  


    I grew up in rural NY and then moved to NC when I started teaching.  Living in Virginia is the perfect combination for my Northern and Southern sides!  Outside of school, my husband and two sons keep me very busy with bike riding, Boy Scouts, Lego building, and all kinds of outdoor adventures.  In my spare time I enjoy baking, travel and coffee!
