Bio:

As a product of Desoto County Schools and a graduate of Horn Lake High School, I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to serve as principal of Lake Cormorant Elementary School!

Following high school, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Mississippi. I taught second grade at Chickasaw Elementary School for one year. When Center Hill Elementary opened in 2002, I welcomed the opportunity to teach in a new school. I taught second grade at Center Hill Elementary School for 13 years.

In 2015, I accepted a full scholarship to the Principal Corps program at The University of Mississippi. This incredible educational leadership program allowed me to spend a year as an administrative intern at Southaven High School and Overpark Elementary School. In 2016, I obtained a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I served as an assistant principal at Southaven Intermediate School for three years. This allowed me to develop skills as an instructional leader, while learning from successful mentors.

My husband, Rick, and I graduated from Horn Lake High School and are thrilled with the opportunity to serve in the Lake Cormorant community! We have two sons, Garrett and Drew, and they have also been educated by Desoto County Schools. Therefore, I am delighted to lead a school in this very successful school district. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can help you in any way.
