I am honored to serve the Quinter Community as the QES Principal and the USD 293 Superintendent.

Education: B.S. in Elementary Education, Mount St. Mary’s University; M.A. in Educational Leadership, Salisbury University; and Ed.D. in Educational Leadership, University of Maryland Eastern Shore

Experience: I spent eight wonderful years teaching elementary students in all content areas. I have since served in various administrative roles, including assistant principal, principal, and superintendent.

Hometown: My family is from Maryland. I grew up in Hagerstown, MD.

Family: My husband, Jason, and I have two wonderful daughters – Brooklyne and Madilyne. Our family moved from Maryland’s Eastern Shore to Atchison, Kansas in 2015. We relocated to Quinter in 2017. We appreciate the opportunity to raise our daughters in a small-town.

Hobbies: Spending quality time with my family in the great outdoors.

I appreciate the opportunity to work with such caring teachers and supportive families and community members to serve all students in the Quinter Public Schools.
