Welcome to Meadows! I am proud to serve as the Principal for Meadows Elementary. I am currently in my 13th year at Meadows and 25th year in education. I have spent my entire career serving the Topeka Public Schools district as a teacher, coach and administrator at both the Middle and Elementary levels.

I am a lifelong Topekan. I completed my Bachelor Degree at Washburn University to become Kindergarten through 9th grade certified teacher. I went on to Emporia State University to obtain my Master's Degree in Educational Administration. I obtained my District Level License in May of 2018.

In my free time, I love to spend time with my family. My kids are very involved in sports and school. I also enjoy traveling with my husband and friends. Our favorite place to visit is the ocean and relax on the beach.

It is my absolute pleasure to serve our community. I believe we can all make a difference in our community by supporting education and children. At Meadows, we strive to educate the whole child.

I am so excited to be back at Meadows! For those of you who have been around for a while, you might remember me as a fourth grade teacher. I began my career right here at Meadows in 2005. I taught fourth grade for eight years and now I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to serve our families as the Assistant Principal.

I grew up in Topeka and am a proud product of Topeka Public Schools. I attended McClure Elementary, French Middle School, and Topeka West High School. I graduated from Washburn University with both my Bachelors and Masters Degrees.

I have three children who are all very active in sports. Any of my freetime outside of school is usually spent sitting on a set of bleachers cheering on my favorite players.

I want to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude to the Meadows families. It is an honor to serve you and your students. I look forward to working with each of you to help foster the love of learning in your student.
