I am excited to join the Judges and get to know the students and educators of Winchester. I've been teaching high school for 15 years and my favorite part of my job is getting to work with teenagers, getting to know them as individuals, and see them turn into young adults. I have lived in Virginia my whole life, spending the first half in VIrginia Beach and the second half in the Shenandoah Valley. My husband and I have a son, a daughter, and a Boston Terrier. I am a fan of thrift stores, fiction, gardening, recipes, skateboarding, and puzzles.
