I am born and bred in the great state of Texas with my roots in the small south Texas town of Orange Grove. I am the proud mom of two kids, Emily (21) and Scott (27), and one grandson, Landon (7). After becoming an empty-nester, my husband Jeff and I moved to Burnet, Texas from Round Rock on a little piece of property that we call home.

I have been blessed to serve students in five school districts across the state of Texas for the last 21 years. After graduating from Southwest Texas State University (aka Texas State University) in San Marcos, Texas, I taught in Kinder, 2nd, 4th, 5th and GT classrooms. I then served as an Instructional Coach for teachers before moving into campus administration for the last nine years. The last five of those years, I have been blessed to be a part of LHISD, and I am so proud to be a part of this great district. Panther Proud!

I was born and raised in Texas. My husband and I are both originally from Lampasas, Texas. We have three wonderful children. We moved to Liberty Hill three years ago and fell in love with the community. I graduated from Angelo State University with a bachelor’s degree and earned a Master of Education Administration degree from Texas Tech University. I have served students in four districts across Texas as a classroom teacher, Interventionist, Instructional Coach, and Assistant Principal. 


I absolutely love the field of education, and I am dedicated to being a lifelong learner in this profession. The opportunity to build relationships with students, teachers, families, and the communities is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. I am passionate about fostering relationships and being a part of children’s growth. I pride myself in being a part of every child’s education and helping them grow personally, academically, socially, and emotionally. I look forward to getting to know our students and families and serve within our community. I am so honored to be a LHISD Panther and blessed to be a part of the Rancho Sienna Elementary family!

I am so excited to be part of the Rancho Sienna team for 2019-2020! I have a Bachelors in English and French from THE University of Texas (Go Horns!) and a Masters in Educational Leadership from West Texas A&M University. I've been fortunate to work in 5 different districts in Texas over my career so I've seen lots of fantastic teaching! I have worked at all levels, pre-K through high school, in my 26 years in education and am thrilled to be working with elementary students again. In my spare time, you can find me playing at the lake, watching Harry Potter movies, or reading a book. My husband and I are the proud parents of 3 children, ages 22, 18, and 16, and 2 dogs. I'm passionate about literacy and student achievement. I look forward to getting to know the Rancho Sienna community of students, families, and staff.
