Assistant Principal

Welcome to Northwoods Park Middle School DOLPHINS!!! 

          I am extremely excited about about the 2017-2018 school year at the Park!!! We have a lot of wonderful things planned for this year! 

          Upon graduation from Jacksonville High School, I attended East Carolina University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education.  I earned my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and my school administration licensure through Gardner Webb University.  Prior to becoming an assistant principal, I spent 12 years as an elementary school teacher, 9 of those years were spent here in Onslow County at Clyde Erwin Elementary Magnet School. 

          As your assistant principal, it is my goal to promote the mission and vision of Northwoods Park Middle School.  I truly believe in the mission: Excellence. Every Student. Every Day.  I am looking forward to building positive relationships with the students, parents, staff, and community so together we can strive toward EXCELLENCE! I invite and encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns at 910-347-1202 or
