Significant Life Experiences that led me to HLCS: If I could answer in one word it would be... God. He called, I answered.
I come to Harbor Light with 13 years of public school classroom teaching experience. I am passionate about teaching and learning and the administrator position at Harbor Light piqued my interest because it allows me to shift my focus to Christ-centered education. This position would allow my school home and my church home to become ONE. While I bring with me a host of experiences and strengths from the academic arena, it is the work that God continues to do inside of me that gives me confidence in my ability to lead with boldness, and character.
I Love HLCS because…of the family and love that radiates through the halls. God’s love is on full display when you see a high school student giving attention to a preschooler, or when students go out of their way to help each other out. HLCS is a place like no other.
Activities & hobbies I enjoy: Spending time with my husband Jordan, and girls Daphne, Audrey, and Meredith is my absolute favorite thing to do. Whether we having dinner with friends, going on a bike ride, or snuggling up to watch a movie, I love spending time with my crew. I also love to run, go to the beach, and read!

I love HLCS because… well there probably isn’t enough room on the page to share with you why I love HLCS!!! If I could pick just one thing, would it be the education level, the excellent teachers, staff, coaches and volunteers, the love and friendship the kids have towards each other, the fact that God is shown in everything that we do. I can’t just focus on one thing, because all of these add up to what makes HLCS such an amazing school. I love everything about HLCS!! We have amazing parents that support and help out so much, we have students that love to be here, and represent Christ in all that they do, we have staff members that love their jobs, each other, and their students. HLCS is not just a school where excellence in education is taught, but it is a family, where the love of Christ is shown daily, where we are encouraged to step out and step up for Christ, and where we can have peace in the knowledge that our children will be supported and loved at all times.

I love to travel, and my favorite place to go is to South Carolina. I also enjoy reading and being involved with our church.
