Beaufort is my home.  I began my own school career as a Kindergarten student in Beaufort County schools many years ago.  So, it is with great pride that I serve as the Principal of Port Royal Elementary School.  In 2021, I celebrated my 25th year as an educator in this school district.  I have been fortunate to serve as an Early Childhood teacher as well as an Instructional coach.  I am passionate about finding ways to help each student experience success each school day.  My goal is for each student to be safe, happy, engaged, and learning at the highest levels possible.  I look forward to reaching our destination: Excellence!

I was born in the cold state of Ohio, but after moving to South Carolina for college I never looked back! I taught/instructional coached for 17 years in Beaufort County, 15 at Port Royal Elementary, before becoming the assistant principal at Port Royal Elementary School. My goal is to help create a school culture that embraces students emotional and academic needs so that students can learn and reach optimal academic success.
