Greetings Yulee Hornets! I am thrilled to be one of the Assistant Principals at YMS this upcoming year. I have been in education now for 14 years with experience in fine arts (music), reading, reading intervention, and athletics. I look forward to serving our students and working with parents. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, playing instruments, and exploring Florida with my husband, Chip, and golden retriever puppy, Charlee.  We are new to Florida having moved from Tennessee so we are looking forward to becoming part of the YMS community.
