I am thrilled to serve as the Principal of WD Williams Elementary.  I am a graduate of Owen High and committed to providing a safe, rigorous learning environment for our children in the Swannanoa Valley.  I know how special this community is and am grateful to be a part in educating our youngest learners.


Before coming to Williams, I served as an Assistant Principal in Asheville City Schools for two years.  I also taught in an elementary classroom for eight years at Black Mountain Elementary.  I am a graduate of Appalachian State University with a degree in Elementary Education and licensure in School Administration.  I also hold a Master’s degree in Special Education from Western Carolina University.

I consider myself a lifelong learner and have a motivation for professional growth.  I hope to share the enthusiasm I find in education with students, staff and families.  I look forward to partnering with you to help our students find their place in the world.
