It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the Assistant Principal of North Wilkes High School. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve in a leadership position that is embodied by successful students, a dedicated staff, and a supportive community. I am very fortunate to find myself within a school that continues to create a strong commitment towards the support of its students and families.


I am a graduate of Appalachian State University and Gardner-Webb University. Within my educational career, I have served in both the administrative and classroom teacher positions. I began as a middle school math and science teacher. Most recently, I served as the Assistant Principal at Mountain View Elementary. I am thrilled to bring my educational experience and skills to further promote the success of North Wilkes High School. 


On a personal note, I live within the North Wilkes Community and am eager to begin this new journey.

I believe in the importance of strong relationships being the vital component to the success of any organization. Therefore, I look forward to my personal involvement with students, families, and the overall community. North Wilkes High School has a strong tradition of success that I am excited to be a part of.
