Welcome to another wonderful year at Sand Ridge Elementary! 

A little about me...This year marks my 23rd year in education, all in Onslow County, and my sixth year as the principal of Sand Ridge Elementary.  My entire career has been spent at the elementary level as a teacher, assistant principal and principal, 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 enjoy reading, kayaking, camping and crafting I also passionately root for the Philadelphia Eagles and Appalachian State Mountaineers football teams.

Thank you for your continued support of Sand Ridge Elementary!
