I am honored that the District 10 community has allowed me the opportunity to serve as the principal of Collinsville Middle School. I have spent the past 9 years of my life working within the public school setting where I have experienced students from the Kindergarten level to high school. Prior to public education, I served in the private sector working with high risk students from various communities throughout Illinois. Helping students see the true potential within themselves is my mission and I am thrilled to be able to work within my purpose right here in this community.
As a native of the St. Louis metropolitan community, I was born, raised and educated in the neighboring town of Edwardsville. I did my undergraduate work between the Naval Academy in Annapolis Maryland and Bradley University in Peoria Illinois. I completed my Master's degrees in School and Community Counseling, School Administration and my Doctorate in Education during the 2014-15 school year. I believe that learning is a life long adventure and it begins with my example.
Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of working with a number of great people, staff and students. In my brief time here in Collinsville so far, I have found a great willingness among a number of groups to support and encourage each other as we push through these difficult times not only within our district when it comes to finances, but also throughout the country. I see this as a true community that cares and I am so honored to be a part of it.

Hello CMS Families!
I am truly grateful for the opportunity to begin my administrative career at Collinsville Middle School as Assistant Principal. I have had the privilege to serve as a teacher for the Collinsville school district at both Caseyville Elementary and Dorris Intermediate school as a 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade teacher. I am looking forward to starting the year with many familiar faces of both students and families that I have had the opportunity to work with in the past.
I have many educational opportunities that will allow me to be successful in this position as an Assistant Principal including a dual-Bachelor’s degrees from Eastern Illinois University in Elementary Education (K-8) and Special Education (K-12) in December of 2011. I have also obtained a Master’s degree from McKendree University in Educational Studies which specialized in reading. In May of 2016, I completed my Educational Specialist degree from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville in Educational Administration.
For the 2016-2017 school year I will be in charge of working with the 7th grade class and will be moving with them during the 2017-2018 school year as they move through their 8th grade year at CMS. I look forward to working with each of you!
