About Me

am so excited for this school year! This will be my 4th year of teaching in theĀ Leander School District and my 2nd year at Vandegrift. I have lived in Austin for 4 years. But, I have lived in 7 cities since leaving my hometown of Atlanta, GA in 1989. I have a B.S. in Management Science from Georgia Tech and an M.B.A. from Georgia State. I spent over 20 years in the business world in a variety of roles from consulting to entrepreneurship. It is my privilege to share my passion for business with students while guiding them to discover their own career path and goals.

I have been married 25 years and have 3 children. My daughter, Alex, is 24 and works for a PR firm in Manhattan specializing in the music industry. My oldest son, Luke, is a senior at S.M.U majoring in business and minoring in music. He has a successful band in Dallas called Blue Apollo. My youngest child, Sam, is a freshman at the University of Texas at Dallas majoring in Economics.

When I am not teaching, I am either cooking, reading or walking around my neighborhood. I love to travel (The picture is me on the London Eye this summer!), hike and just be outdoors in general. My favorite city is San Diego where I lived for 5 years. But, Austin is a close 2nd!
