Welcome to Hollywood Hill
I empower teachers to love, support and grow each student to change the world. It is my desire to lead this school in a way that produces positive outcomes for all of our students while working alongside our teachers and families.
A little about me… I’m a proud graduate of Arizona State University, and received my Masters in Teaching and principal credentials from City University. The 2019-20 school year is my 15th in education and 5th as a building administrator. My teaching career started in Northshore with time in Entiat and Lake Washington. As a National Board Certified teacher, I understand and respect the complexities of teaching in an ever changing and more challenging world. Prior to coming to Hollywood Hill, I served Northshore as a Teacher on Special Assignment rolling out Full Day Kindergarten across the district. My biggest highlight was spending time in the classrooms every day and the amazing insights that students share with us when we take the time to really listen.
On the personal side, I have been married to Tim for 18 years. We live in Redmond where we are raising three incredible sons, Thatcher (a freshman at ASU!), Cooper (junior) and Mason (a Hollywood Hill fifth grader!). As a parent as well, I look forward to raising this next generation together!
