Tell us a little bit about you. Things you like outside of school, etc…

My family moved from Dallas to Houston in the summer of 2019 to be closer to family. My husband and two sons (6,2) have enjoyed getting to know Houston over the past year. We are avid outdoors people and love to hike, camp, and explore out in nature. One of our favorite activities is going to the Houston Arboretum. Additionally, I love to ride bikes and spend time by the ocean.


Give us an idea of your education passion, can you tell us something of why you chose education…

I didn’t choose education as much as I choose children. My passion is to guide in the unfolding of a child’s potential through the discovery of themselves and the world around them. At Garden Oaks, we have the gift of three years with our students. Over that time period, it is just amazing to see the knowledge, self-discovery, and progress that children make. I simply get to be a witness and play a small part in the development of these amazing humans.
