“As a life-long educator, my passion has been grounded in educating the whole child. The right social and experiential education environment coupled with supportive curriculum creates an amazing place for children to learn and succeed! I am excited for the journey that lies ahead and honored to be chosen as the Head of School for the Epiphany School of Charlotte!”
My “Epiphany Story” goes back to the very first weekend that I moved to Charlotte. I visited the school at the former campus and received a tour from Stacy. I was overwhelmed with how happy the children were, how engaged in learning they were, and how calm and peaceful the school was. All that while having the children experience wonderful curriculum and social skills programming. I immediately called all of my friends in the education profession and told them, “They’re doing it! They’re really doing it!” I tried to convince all of them to move up here with with me!
A little background on me. I have been the Director of LearningRx for over six years, both here and in Jacksonville, FL. LearningRx is a nationwide cognitive therapy program. I most recently ran and helped open the new center in Concord, NC. During my LearningRx years in Jacksonville, I volunteered for the Duval County, ESE Advisory Committee. During that time I served as Vice Chair and then Chairperson. I am a former middle school Teacher (math/science/gifted/remedial), Director of Exceptional Student Education, and Guidance Counselor. Before that, I taught in experiential education while working as a Zoo Educator and as a Captain aboard sailing vessels where children learned biology, navigation, and seamanship.
My husband and I moved to Charlotte over one year ago, and we don’t plan on leaving. We love Charlotte and all that it has to offer. My husband and I are from the North East, so we’re happy to get our seasons back! We are both sailors and spend our weekends up at Lake Norman. Join us for a sail, one day!
I couldn’t be more excited to join the students and staff at Epiphany. My door is always open! I look forward to meeting all of you!
