Take Stock in Children Mentor/Student Services Coordinator/College Success Coach

I have been working in education since 2004. I was a classroom teacher for 14 years, then I became an online teacher for children overseas for 3 years. In October 2021, I joined the Education Foundation as a College Success Coach, Mentor & Student Services Coordinator for Take Stock in Children. My favorite part of this job is building relationships with students, mentors, and our communities!

I am a Florida native and grew up in nearby Orlando. Outside of work, I enjoy running, watching Florida Gators football, and spending time with my husband and sons at the beach. I’m a bit of a Disney nerd, and I have a slight obsession with hippos and ringing cowbells at cross country meets. There’s no place I’d rather be than in Lake County!
