Superintendent

I am honored to serve our school community in the role of Superintendent! I began my career as a high school social studies teacher in 1998 and taught courses including Psychology, Government, US History, World History, Cultural Geography, and Minorities and Prejudice at Hortonville and Hartford High Schools. In 2003 I became an Assistant Principal and Activities/Athletic Director at Waukesha South High School and in 2008 the Principal of Waukesha West High School.

During my educational career, I have presented on Hate Groups, Diversity, Adolescent Literacy and School Improvement, Differentiation, Student Use of Technology—Implications and Lessons for Schools, and Cyber bullying and Social Interaction with Technology– How to Talk to Your Child, the Master Facilities Planning Process and Community Engagement, facilitated strategic planning for school districts and organizations, and serve as a search consultant for districts seeking new superintendents. I also really enjoy and am frequently asked to present to aspiring administrators at local universities.

My Bachelor’s degree is in Psychology from Lawrence University, and both my Master’s and Ph.D. degrees have been earned in Educational Administration from the University of Wisconsin- Madison. I enjoy spending time with my husband and four children, doing landscaping and home projects, reading, and exercising in my time away from work.
