I grew up in neighboring Barrow County and have been an educator for 12 years. I began my career at Norcross High School and started working at Jefferson High School in 2013. In 2017, I transferred from the high school to JMS.  I live in Hoschton with my husband, Chris, who is the Assistant Principal at Jefferson Elementary, my three kids, dog and cat. I love sports and am an avid Georgia Tech fan (Go Jackets!). I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and reading! I love working with middle school students and cannot wait to meet you all.  See you soon and Go Dragons!
