Being able to make a positive difference in the lives of all students. Working together with teachers, parents, and the community as partners in education to help every child become successful.

What event here at Central Valley CSD has made/makes a difference to you personally and in your career?

The event at Central Valley that has made a difference in my life was having the opportunity to become Fisher’s new principal. This event has led me to embark on a new journey that gives me an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of all the children at Fisher Elementary.

If you could do anything on a weekend, what would you do?

Honestly, I love to spend time with my family. Our lives are so busy during the work week between work, school, and sports that finding that quality time together as a family is important to me. I love to do fun activities with them such as; go ice-skating, watch movies, and hanging out at home for a family game night.

What book and/or author are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading Love Anthony by Lisa Genova.

If we were to listen to your iPod or sound system, what would be playing?

I enjoy listening to various types of music, but right now you would probably find country music on shuffle. I’m a big Tim McGraw fan.

What is your favorite television show/movie/actor?

My favorite movie is Grease.

What one thing would you share that people might not know about you?

I was a figure skater for many years.
