Dear Walnut Grove Families,

It is an honor to be your principal and to join this wonderful school community. I am excited to meet all of you and embark on a journey of collective learning and academic excellence.
I am originally from Rhode Island where I received my undergraduate degree in Education and History from Providence College and my masters in Counseling from Rhode Island College.  I traveled south to earn my doctorate at Vanderbilt University and decided to make Tennessee my home.   I live in Franklin with my family and my dog, Cobble.  

My greatest joy is working with teachers, students and families.  I love children and look forward to building long lasting relationships that nurture and support their individual academic and social development.

It is my hope that you find Walnut Grove an exciting school to learn and grow.  My door is always open and I look forward to seeing you on the Walnut Grove campus soon.
