    I am proud to be the new principal of Graham Hill Elementary School.  I am a leader who seeks to promote equity in education and ensure that each student has the opportunity to meet and maximize their potential as a learner each and every day.  For the past six years, I served as an assistant principal in Federal Way Public Schools.  Being a school leader in Federal Way was an incredible experience that helped prepare me for my position as the principal at Graham Hill Elementary. 

    I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Ottawa University, and Master of Education in Secondary Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment from Jones International University.  I received my Educational Leadership Certificate from the University of Washington, Tacoma. In addition, I have elementary and middle school teaching experience and was an Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) Site Coordinator for a STEM academy.

    When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I have been married for over 30 years. We have two adult children – Raveen and John. We also have a new Yorkshire Terrier puppy named Thor. We are originally from Phoenix, Arizona and continue to explore Seattle and the state of Washington.

    I look forward to partnering with our school community to ensure a high-quality education and positive school experience for all Blue Whale students.
