It is a true privilege and joy to serve as the principal of Fort Lewis Elementary School.  Fort Lewis has a long history of academic success, parent and community involvement, and happy children! 

I have been serving students in Roanoke County since 1995 as a special educator, classroom teacher, and assistant principal.  Providing meaningful and positive learning experiences for our students is not only my mission, it is my passion.  

I look forward to working together to continue this great tradition and to explore new ways to excite and inspire our children to be life-long learners.  My door is always open to share concerns, questions, and great ideas!  

You can't hide that LION Pride!
