I am so excited to be a part of the Weatherly Heights Elementary School family as your principal! I was born and raised in Huntsville and graduated from Sparkman High School. I have primarily worked as a teacher and administrator in Huntsville City Schools, while some of my experience was gained at Liberty Middle School in Madison while I was in college.

My husband, Marc, is a former teacher and now manages a local farm, as well as staying home with our precious baby girl, Gianna Grace. We also have two dogs. I love all things Disney, and you will rarely see me without a Dr. Pepper close by! I also love traveling, snorkeling, and photography.
