       I am in my 10th year of working in public education. I spent 3 years teaching at both the high school and middle school level, 3 years as a campus testing coordinator, and then went on to spend 3 years as an Assistant Principal in Dallas ISD working to build the fourth Early College High School in a partnership with Eastfield College.  I was serving as a high school principal when I made the decision to join Uplift.   I am excited to start this new chapter of my life. 
       When I am not working, I enjoy traveling outside of the U.S., running marathons, being outdoors, reading, and spending time with my family.  I am a lifelong learner and intend on pursing my doctorate in educational administration at SMU in the Fall.
