I am very proud to be a member of the Ashley River family! We believe students learn best through an art-infused curriculum.  Students develop reading, problem solving, and writing skills as they explore science and social studies THROUGH the arts.

Educational Background

This year will be my 15th year at Ashley River and my 23rd year of teaching!  I have a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina and a Master's Degree from College of Charleston in Elementary Education.  I am also Nationally Board Certified in Early Childhood Education.
I am a Carolina Gamecock and an Alumni!


My children, Emily and Caroline, are both graduates of Ashley River.  Emily graduated from the College of Charleston and Caroline is a freshman at the University of South Carolina.  We live in Mt. Pleasant and spend much of our time at the beach.
