About Me

I was born and raised in Decatur, Georgia in DeKalb County. I have lived in Duluth, Georgia in Gwinnett County since 2006. My husband and I have been married for 17 years and we have two school-aged children who attend Gwinnett County Schools. 

I am currently the Director of Computer Science Equity Initiatives at the Kapor Center based in Oakland, California. I work to support K12 teachers, students, and schools across the country in establishing quality computer science instruction and pedagogy. I joined Kapor Center over three years ago after spending 15 years working in K-12 education, teaching physical education. health, and computer science in Gwinnett County Public Schools (at Summerour MS, Peachtree Ridge HS, Sweetwater MS, and Creekland MS), teaching and coaching basketball at Wesleyan School and Pace Academy, and also working at Georgia Tech Constellations Center supporting Atlanta Public Schools with computer science implementation. 

I have received accolades for my teaching and work, including being named 2019 Georgia Tech Diversity and Inclusion Fellow, 2019 CSTA Equity Fellow, 2017 Outstanding Ed.S Scholar in the Bagwell College of Education at Kennesaw State University for Instructional Technology, ASCD 2017 Emerging Leader, and 2016 PBS Lead Digital Innovator for the state of Georgia.

I received my B.S. in Exercise Science from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. I earned my M.S. in Physical Education with a coaching leadership concentration from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC. I graduated with my Ed.S in Instructional Technology from Kennesaw State University in Marietta, GA. I hold three Georgia state certifications: S-6 in Instructional Technology, T-6 in P-12 Computer Science, and T-6 in P-12 Health and Physical Education.

I am running for District 3 Gwinnett County School Board because: 

  • I believe all students in Gwinnett County Schools should have access to quality public K12 education that enables them to grow, experience success, learn, and become global empathetic citizens.

  • I believe all educators in Gwinnett County Schools should be treated as professionals as well as be provided the support, time, and resources to meet the variety of needs Gwinnett County students have. 

  • I believe Gwinnett County Schools must continue to progress to the ideal of being "World Class" by continuing to create inclusive and equitable learning communities for all students, staff, parents/guardians, and other stakeholders in the county.
