Principal's Bio

As a graduate of Linden High School, I am blessed to be back on campus serving as the principal.  I moved to Linden from Stockton when I was in the 5th grade and attended Glenwood Elementary, followed by LHS.  I played volleyball and softball all four years at LHS, and made lifelong memories with friends I have kept to this day.  I went on to play volleyball two more years at Delta College.  I graduated from CSU Stanislaus with my BA in Liberal Studies.  I have a Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Administrative Services Credential. This is my 21st year in education, 12 of those teaching for Linden Unified.  I spent 5 years as an administrator with Lodi Unified, and am beyond excited to be back serving a community I love.  
I have two children, a Freshman and a Senior that both attend LHS.  I am a parent and educator and I bring these lenses into focus as a leader.   Student success and safety are my highest priorities.   I am very fortunate to work with a dedicated staff of certificated and classified personnel who love this community and our students, and are willing to help me navigate through this difficult pandemic time. 
LHS staff is dedicated and professional, and we will do everything possible to make this year a successful year for our students both academically and emotionally.  We have been working diligently through all of the changes, and have plans we believe will support the best student outcomes.  
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or especially good things I should know!
Looking forward to a great year!
