Dear Luke Jet Families, 

I am extremely excited to introduce myself to the Luke Jet Family and am honored to be your Principal for the 2022-2023 School Year.  The students, staff, parents and community at Luke are incredible and I look forward to working alongside each and every one of you as we continue to grow and learn.

This year will be my fourth year with the Dysart Unified School District.  I have been in school leadership for 12 years, serving as an Assistant Principal for 8 years and Director of STEM and Assessment for 3 years.  Prior to leadership, I taught Kindergarten and 7th Grade Math Teacher and was a Math Interventionist and Instructional Coach.  I am fortunate to be named as part of Luke’s talented team.

I was born and raised in Michigan.  I attended Western Michigan University and moved to Arizona a week after I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  I obtained a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Principal Certificate from Northern Arizona University. My husband recently retired from the Air Force Reserves at Luke Air Force Base, after serving as a Firefighter for 23 years.  We live in Surprise with our daughter, son and three golden retrievers.  We enjoy the outdoors and spend our winters hiking the White Tank Mountains and playing at the parks and our summers swimming and playing family games.  

I look forward to serving this amazing community and building excellence along the way - this year is going to be extraordinary!
