It is an honor to serve the Hanna Woods Elementary Community as building principal. I began my education in Parkway as a kindergarten student at Carman Trails Elementary and graduated from Parkway South. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with an emphasis in English Language Arts and Social Sciences from Quincy University while playing Division II softball. I completed my Master's in Administration from Lindenwood University in 2012. I completed my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Maryville University in December of 202. Throughout my career, I taught 5th grade in Parkway at Wren Hollow Elementary, 7th grade English Language Arts at Parkway Central Middle, and served as the Instructional Coach at Parkway Central Middle. I began my administrative career as the assistant principal at Highcroft Ridge Elementary. Most recently, I served as the assistant principal at Hanna Woods. I coached high school softball - 5 years at Parkway South as the Head JV coach and four years at Parkway Central as the Head Varsity coach. In my free time, I enjoy running, traveling, golfing, and baking. I look forward to a year of "Growing Together".
