About Me

am so excited for this school year! This will be my 5th year of teaching in theĀ Leander School District and my 3rd year at Vandegrift. I have lived in Austin for 5 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 banking to consulting and 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 26 years and have 3 children. My daughter, Alex, is 25 and works for a PR firm in Manhattan specializing in the music industry. My oldest son, Luke, recently graduated from S.M.U with a B.B.A. in Marketing and minor in music. He has a successful band in Dallas called Blue Apollo. My youngest child, Sam, graduated from Vandegrift and currently works for Cutco International.

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 last 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!
