Welcome to the Principal’s Page!  I am glad you decided to visit!

I am excited to be entering my ninth year as a school administrator and my second year as your principal! I am extremely excited and honored to serve you! As I entered the doors of Havelock Elementary the very first day, I knew this was the place I was meant to be.  It feels like home!

My father was a Navy Corpsman who arrived at Cherry Point at the early age of 21.  He and my mother raised my two brothers and me in this area, so I am very proud to say both “Oorah” and “Go Navy” simultaneously!  I am very in-tune with military life and look forward to supporting our military children at Havelock Elementary School!  I am also very in-tune with local folks and can’t wait to nurture that Eastern Carolina Havelock pride!   Something you may already know about me is the fact that I am a life-long learner.  I love teaching and learning!  I enjoy continuing my education and always try to improve as a leader.  I hope this love of learning will spread across Havelock Elementary School like wild flowers and bloom in every inch of the school!  It is my goal to make our school the premiere school of Havelock! I want everyone to say, "Wow, that's a great school!"   

I’d like to thank you for your support and invite you to visit or call me anytime! I would also like to invite each of you to become a school volunteer and to join our PTA!  Your help is needed and very much valued! 

Finally, I would like to assure you I will do whatever it takes for your child to be successful.  I am truly dedicated to our school and to educating our students at a high level.  Please join me in creating a path of educational success for your children!  I guarantee it will be a valuable and rewarding adventure!
