Degrees and Certifications:


This is my first year at Ridgeview, fourth year in Olathe, eighth year in administration and 19th year in education. 

I attended St. Louis University on a basketball scholarship. Transferred and finished my BA in Business Administration from William Jewell College. I then graduated from Avila University with my certification in Secondary Education – Business. During my time teaching, I earned my ELL Endorsement and graduated with my Masters in School Leadership from Baker University. 

My reason for going into education had to do with my own children. Representation and empowering students to know they have a voice and how to use it was essential. My desire is for all of my children, at home and school, to know they are AMAZINGLY gifted and DESTINED for GREATNESS. I get the honor of helping to grow my teachers, who grow my students to be the very BEST version of themselves.
