As a product of the Wheelersburg School District, I have experienced the tradition, spirit, and pride of being a Pirate and I know how much that means to our students and faculty. Putting our children first and going above and beyond for them is what enables our school district to perform at a high level each and every year. Never taking that for granted and expecting to win in the classroom and through extracurricular activities are some of the traditions we must uphold. I am proud to be a small part of the Wheelersburg team that leads our children to becoming successful adults in society.

The importance of education was instilled in me at an early age and was a central tenet of my upbringing. My parents are both retired educators who served in many schools in the area. Having the opportunity to give back to the school district my husband and I graduated from and my children attend is an honor. I am looking forward to working cooperatively with the stakeholders entrusted to support our students as they evolve into critical thinkers and contributing members of society who are prepared to transition to the next phase of their lives.
