I am honored and blessed to be the Superintendent of Crestline Exempted Village Schools. I began this position in August 2023. I spent the past eight years as the Superintendent of Dalton Local Schools. June 2015, I completed my 17th year in education, my fifth year as Principal of Kimpton Middle School, and my 11th as an administrator with the Stow-Munroe Falls City Schools. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Kent State University in Secondary Education: Comprehensive Social Studies and a Minor in School Health Education. Before Stow-Munroe Falls City Schools, I began my teaching career as an Individual Small Group Tutor at Hudson High School. I then went back to Kent State University and obtained my elementary teaching certification and taught 5th Grade in a self-contained classroom and then 7th Grade World History in the Nordonia Hills City Schools. While there I obtained my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as my Ed.S. in K-12 School Administration from Kent State University. I began my administrative career with the Stow-Munroe Falls City Schools as the Assistant Principal at Lakeview Intermediate School. After a little more than a year there, I became the Principal at Fishcreek Elementary School. I was at Fishcreek Elementary for 5 years, before moving to Kimpton Middle School. I obtained my Superintendent’s License after completing coursework through Ashland University. In addition to my career in education, I also enjoyed a short career (2 years) in law enforcement, as a Deputy Sheriff for the Summit County Sheriff's Office in the mid 1990's.
