I am very excited to be part of the teaching staff at R.A. Jones for the 2017-18 school year! I am a former Jones student and graduate of Boone County High School. I earned bachelor degrees in Elementary/Middle School (Social Studies) Education and Geography from NKU. I earned my Master of Science in Education from Capella University and post graduate work in Counseling. Prior to joining the Jones teaching staff I taught in the Erlanger-Elsmere School District and have also taught at the collegate level in the Human Services and Technology/Business programs. I also have extensive experience working with incoming college freshman as an academic advisor for Nursing, Allied Health and transfer degree programs. In my spare time I enjoy golfing, listening to music, watching the news and spending time with my two sons and new dog, Astrid.
