About Me



Children learn in various ways, we need only to discover what works best for them so they can succeed. I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.

There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child’s natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people.


I completed a Law Degree at St. Mary’s School of Law. Since then, I have practiced law for 14 years, helping people not only get justice for what happened to them, but also helping them move forward and be successful. I am also the PTA president at my children’s school. I think it is important to give back to our community and to volunteer.


I have trained new attorneys for 10 years and I have taught various continuing education courses for attorneys for 10 years.


I am very active in my community. I drafted a proposal to NASA for my local elementary school to host and talk to an astronaut while on Board the Space Station. My proposal was 1 of only 18 selected nationwide. I served as project manager between the school and NASA when we talked to Col. Mike Hopkins while he was on board the International Space Station. It was an amazing experience that will have a lasting impact on the students.
