About the Dean of Students

  • I am so excited to join the KTA family!  I have been in education for 20 years, with all grade levels, from pre-K through eighth grade and have loved every minute of it!  I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and I graduated from ASU with my masters in Educational Leadership two years ago.  I interned at Estrella Elementary and then worked at Akimel A-al last year.  I love Kyrene!

    My family and I moved to Arizona 4 years ago.  Before that we lived in Boston for 11 years (Go Red Sox!!).  My husband and I both grew up in upstate New York in the Ithaca area.  We have three children, ages 13, 12, and 8 and one dog named Tibby.  In our free time we love playing games together, going on road trips, watching movies, and exploring the outside.

    I am constantly impressed with the students, families and teachers at KTA.  This is an amazing place to grow.  Go Tigers!
