I began my educational career as a Montessori educator and have served in various teaching and leadership roles. In 2005, I led a team that launched a new middle school program and later served as its first principal.

Serving as a Major in the U.S. Army, I was deployed for a year and a half as the commander of an Army Civil Affairs unit in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  Our unit provided humanitarian assistance with a focus on building and refurbishing schools, clinics, hospitals, and water wells throughout the Horn of Africa.  I returned home to Sarasota and resumed my role as director of a secondary program.  I am now retired from the Army with 22 years of service.

As Assistant Head of School for SMA Prep, I am inspired by the creativity and dedication of our educators and excited to use my educational leadership, military experience, and passion to help young adolescents develop as life-long learners.
