Hello, Woolridge Family!  I am looking forward to seeing "Oh, the places you'll go!" this school year at Woolridge. Below is a little bit about me:


I received my Bachelor of Science from Radford University in 2001. My degree is in Elementary Education with concentrations in Special Education and English.  In 2007, I received my Master of Science degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in Educational Leadership K-12.

I have been fortunate to be a part of Chesterfield County Public Schools as a student, educator and school administrator. I graduated from James River High School in 1997. I started my career at Alberta Smith Elementary School where I taught 3rd grade for 7 years. I then transferred to Clover Hill Elementary School where I taught 3rd, 4th and 1st grades. I moved into school administration in 2012. I have had the opportunity to work at Evergreen Elementary School as the Administrative Assistant and Bettie Weaver Elementary school as their Assistant Principal. I am excited for another great year here at Woolridge as your principal!


My husband, Brad, and I live in the Midlothian area with our two wonderful children, Chase (11) and Sarah (9). We have a sweet Shichon (Shih tzu/Bichon frise mix) puppy named Stella. I spend most of my free time with my family watching Chase playing soccer, Sarah doing gymnastics and both of them swimming. I have a passion for running, horses, and going to the beach.


Again, I am looking forward to a great year!

Hello, Wildcats! I am thrilled to join the Woolridge Family and serve as your new assistant principal.

My career in Education began in Hanover County as a fifth grade teacher after earning both a B.A. in Advertising and Sports Management and a Master’s of Science in Teaching degree from the State University of New York at Cortland College. During my tenure as a classroom teacher, I earned my Gifted endorsement from the University of Virginia. I have served as the Gifted Resource Teacher for the past five years at Laurel Meadow Elementary School in Hanover County and most recently completed a Post-Master’s certificate in Administration and Supervision from Longwood University. I achieved my National Board certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist in 2014. I have experience teaching all grades at the elementary level and have worked with many diverse learners throughout my career.

I am a native of Syracuse, New York and was brought to the Richmond area after my husband Bryan completed four years of active duty at Fort Drum. I currently live in Mechanicsville with our seven year old, Cameron,  two-year-old twins, Lathan and Tanner, and chocolate lab, Whitney! We love going to the beach, playing outside, traveling, and reading books together.

I am excited and honored to become part of the Woolridge family. As I embark on this new journey, I am looking forward to the relationships and partnerships I will form with our students, staff, parents and community members. Please feel free to contact me or stop by anytime, my door is always open!
