About me

I am excited to continue my work as the Principal of Aurora Hills Middle School. I have been fulfilling my passion for education as an educator in various roles for over 20 years. During this time, my experiences include teaching 6-12th grades, serving as a Dean of Students, an Assistant Principal, and Principal at the secondary level right here in Aurora. This will be my 5th year serving our Aurora Hills community and the 10th year in the Gateway feeder.

My job

My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student every day.

I do my job by leading the staff and students to embrace their diversity, challenge their mindsets, think critically, and lead our community to think globally and act locally.

My community needs me to do my job.

Professional Background

Favorite pasttimes

I enjoy playing soccer, watching my children participate in activities they are involved with, taking walks/jogging with my dog Maya, and spending time with my family and friends. My two children keep me very busy in my "free time." My daughter, Lilly just graduated high school and will be pursuing her undergraduate degree. My son Donie is an 11th grader and loves to play football and lacrosse.
