    It has been my privilege to serve Broward County Schools and Nova High School for 18 years. My career began as a Nova Titan in 2004 and I am dedicated to continuing the tradition of rigor and excellence. As we transition back from eLearning, we are excited to rebuild our relationships and work to close the achievement gaps with new innovative programs. Safety continues to be a top priority and I will work diligently to provide a safe and secure learning environment for all students. At Nova, we pride ourselves on building personalized relationships with students and honoring the Nova tradition by always “Doing the Right Thing”.

    Greetings Titan Nation and the Class of 2026!

    It is truly an honor and privilege to serve our Nova Titans and this educational community.  My daily actions are guided by three key principles: purpose, passion, and perseverance.  My purpose is to support our faculty and staff to ensure our students receive the best education possible so that each student graduates and seeks a post-secondary education.  My passion is our students, and my goals are to help them feel valued, respected, and championed while becoming the best they can be.  My promise is to persevere each and every day to continue the great traditions Nova High has long-established.

    I am a native South Floridian, and a product of the School Board of Broward County, graduating from Miramar High school.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Florida State – GO NOLES! - and received my Master’s from Nova Southeastern in Educational Leadership.  Side note though, I was born and raised a CANE.

    My educational career started as a substitute teacher, then became an established teacher before entering administration. 

    I look forward to getting to know all of our students and stakeholders and making this school year and your next four years a great one!

    Welcome and Go Titan Nation!
