Hello Everyone,

It is with great pleasure that I serve as the principal of Brighton School. I have previously served as the principal and Assistant Principal of Grantswood Community School. I have also served as the Assistant Principal of McAdory Elementary. This is my 21st year in the wonderful field of education- 20th in the Jefferson County School District. I am committed to upholding our mission of creating a strong foundation for learning by nurturing, guiding, and challenging our students to achieve their maximum potential so they may become lifelong learners and productive members of society. This mission will continue to soar as we work together. Let's have an AMAZING 2023-2024 school year!

On a personal note, I am married to Roderick. We have two daughters, Indya (23) & Aspen (5).
