I am elated to serve as the Director of Central Nine. It is truly a magical place where students find their passions. I couldn't dream of a better place to work with such amazing students and staff. My passion throughout my entire education career has been Career & Technical Education. I taught for 12 years in Columbus before coming to C9 in 2013 as the Assistant Director where I focused on curriculum, instruction, and evaluations. I taught Engineering & Technology for 10 years at Columbus East High School, and two years at CSA New Tech High School. In high school I took CTE Courses my senior year (Transportation Systems and Mechanical Drawing), and that sparked my interest in becoming a teacher. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Joe, and our children, Faith & Chase. I enjoy playing softball, doing home improvement projects, any design work where I can be creative.
