Principal's Bio

A Little About Me...

Image for A Little About Me...

I am so excited to be joining the Sand Ridge family!  This year marks my 17th year in education, all in Onslow County.  My entire career has been spent at the elementary level and I love elementary school.  Elementary school children are fun, inquisitive and engaging.  They are a joy to be around.

I am originally from the Jersey Shore and proudly call myself a "Jersey Girl", but I love living in North Carolina.  I graduated from Stockton University and completed my Masters of School Administration at East Carolina University.  In my downtime, I can be found reading, scrapbooking or camping with my family.  I am also pretty passionate about football!!

I am looking forward to a wonderful year at Sand Ridge.  The school has a wonderful reputation for having a superior staff, fantastic students and innovative programs.

Please don't hesitate to call me or email me if you have any questions.  I look foward to meeting all of the Sand Ridge students and families.
