It is an absolute joy and privilege to be serving the students and staff at Timberline Elementary as the Associate Principal for the 2020-2021 school year!  This year marks my 19th year in education, and 9th year as a campus administrator. 

I grew up just down the road in Arlington, TX and attended The University of Texas at Austin (go Horns!!) where I received my degree in Elementary Education.  I completed my master's degree at Texas State University and continue to learn and grow every single day I am here! Prior to coming to GCISD, I worked in Keller as an Assistant Principal, and a 5th and 2nd grade teacher in Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD and Leander ISD, just outside of Austin. 

My goal is to give each of our Tigers a safe place to learn and grow, while we work together to fulfill our mission of practicing the Seven Habits to lead, love learning, embrace diversity, achieve goals, and do our best! Please let me know if there is every anything I can do to be of service to you or your child!
