Currently the Assistant Principal, I have been at Laurel Hall for 21 years. I began my career here as the Student Support Director and have also served as the Acting and Interim Principal. The community and family spirit, along with the rigorous academic environment, are what make our school special. I hold a BA from Cal State Northridge in Sociology with a minor in Women’s Studies and an MED in Education with an endorsement for Private School Leader. I have been a member of Emmanuel Lutheran Church for 45 years. I am married with two grown children who both attended the ECC and Laurel Hall. In my spare time, I love to read and bake.
