Principal's Bio


As principal of Chattanooga School for the Liberal Arts for the past seven years, I have watched our students grow and learn in amazing ways and the teachers at this school excel in their craft.  CSLA was named as the Top Elementary Magnet School in the country by Magnet Schools of America during my tenure.  We were also designated as a Tennessee Reward School in 2013 and 2015 for academic performance in the top five percent of the state.  The successes at CSLA and the work I do in Chattanooga resulted in my being named a Chattanooga Woman of Distinction in 2014 - a true honor to me.

I earned my B.S. in Education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and my Masters in Administration from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  I also enjoy mentoring aspiring leaders and provide training at the local and state level.
