Assistant Principal - Radford High School & Dalton Intermediate
I committed to graduate from Blacksburg High School in 2007. I also committed to graduate from Virginia Tech in 2011 (B.A.), and Radford University in 2016 (M.S.).
Radford is a special community, and it is one that I am grateful to be a part of its continued growth. I have had the privilege to work under great leaders and mentors, and I am excited to help build on the strong traditions the Radford school community is known for, while also helping to forge an increasingly innovative path for our students and teachers.
I was inspired to become an educator through two experiences. I grew up in a family of educators who instilled in me the importance and value of working with young people. Additionally, after graduating from Virginia Tech, I had the opportunity to substitute teach. It was this experience that convinced me that public education was for me. Positive interactions with the many teachers, coaches, mentors, and advisers that I have had each helped me see the rewarding possibilities in becoming an educator.
