I am extremely honored to serve as Principal of Lincoln Elementary. The staff at Lincoln have a long history and tradition of devotion towards providing the best education possible to their students, and I am proud to work with them to achieve this goal. As a staff, we are all grateful to work with parents in a positive partnership to help our students reach their greatest potential.
My family and I joined the Ottawa community in 2012 and it was one of the best decisions of my life as I am blessed to work with an amazing group of adults, awesome kids, and committed parents. I first first served as Assistant Principal at Ottawa Middle School for 4 years before joining the staff at Lincoln in 2016.
Prior to moving to Ottawa, I was an educator in Emporia, KS at Emporia Middle School. I taught 7th and 8th grade social studies and coached a variety of sports before becoming Activities Director and Assistant Principal at the same building.
I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Education, Minor in Political Science, and Masters in Educational Administration, all from Emporia State University. Currently, I am working towards receiving my doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Kansas.
