About Me

Hello Dixon Elementary School families, faculty and staff!  I am thrilled to be a part of the amazing DES educational team.  I live in Wilmington but am originally from Jacksonville where I attended Northwoods Elementary School, Northwoods Park Middle School, and Jacksonville High School.  After high school, I attended UNCW (Bachelor’s in Psychology ’04), UNCC (Master’s in Ed ’13), and then UNCW again (Ed.D. ’16).

My educational experiences include serving as a mathematics teacher and department lead at a private school in Wilmington where I initiated our school STEM program, served on our school leadership team, and helped start our MTSS program.  This past school year, I served as assistant principal at Jacksonville Commons Elemenary. 

I have been married to my husband Wingate for nine years and our son, Walt, just turned seven on the 4th of July.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching Walt play soccer, baseball, basketball, and the piano, as well as going to the beach. 

I am firmly committed to the educational success of every student and look forward to working with each of you during the 2017-2018 school year.
