I feel so fortunate to serve as the Principal of Crossroads North. It is my pleasure to support the staff and students in this amazing learning community. It is the work that I love to do.

Prior to becoming the school Principal, I served as an Assistant Principal at Crossroads North from June 2005 – December 2017. Before joining the South Brunswick School District, I began my educational career as a middle school science teacher in the DC area, and following that experience, I spent nine years teaching middle school science and high school biology in Pennsylvania.

I hold a B.S. in Biology, an M.S. in Biology, and Administrative Certification from Shippensburg University.

In addition to being an educator, I am the lucky wife of Thomas and the proud mother of Lily.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Crossroads South school community! I began my tenure in the South Brunswick school district ten years ago as a guidance counselor, and have served as an assistant principal for the last six years. I believe that the school environment should not only support, but also challenge students to reach their full potential. My hope is that every student of this school will find the experience rewarding. I am honored to work with a staff that continues to set high standards for the academic growth as well as the emotional and social development of our students. I am also excited about working with a student body that is motivated and eager to accept challenges. I look forward to the continued success of our community.
