Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Assistant Principal for Westwood Regional High School. It is truly an honor and a pleasure to be a part of such a highly regarded and dedicated school community. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and to working together to help our students achieve academic and personal excellence.

A graduate of Pratt Institute, I began my career in education as a teacher and coach in the Hanover Park Regional School District. After receiving my Masters degree in Administration, I moved on to become an Assistant Principal at Kittatinny Regional Junior/Senior High School, and ultimately joined the staff here at Westwood in 2015.

Throughout my years as an educator, I have dedicated myself towards helping students to develop a strong work ethic, a passion for learning, and a positive attitude as they strived to better themselves as well as the world in which they live. It is with these same values that I am committed to leading and serving the students of Westwood. Through the combined efforts of our administration, faculty, and families, I am confident that we can meet any future challenges as we continue to lead Westwood’s students towards even greater success.

I wish you all an enjoyable and productive school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
