Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  This is my fourth year as the Vice Principal at Summit Academy.  I absolutely love teaching and learning and find it so rewarding to be in a profession in which I am continually challenged to learn and grow.  Prior to becoming a Mountaineer, I worked for twelve years in a Phoenix district as an Assistant Principal, Title I Facilitator and 3rd and 4th grade classroom teacher.  

I am a proud graduate of MPS and reside in Mesa with my husband and our three beautiful children.  We love spending time together as a family and can often be found playing outside, going to the zoo, children’s museum, library, splash pad…pretty much anywhere that the kids can run around and have fun! 

As a parent and an educator, I believe I have the awesome privilege and responsibility to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, positive environment.  If you ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  I look forward to another fabulous year at Summit Academy!   Go Mountaineers!
