I have worked in the educational industry since 2013, enrolling students, providing academic support and working with online learning management systems. I love to help students achieve their potential academically and be a support system for them. Coming from mostly post-secondary experience, working with High School students has been such a blessing. I love to see our student’s blossom into who they are and build a personal relationship with them to help them succeed.
I have been a special education teacher since 2005. My background is in working with students with Emotional Disabilities, Learning Disabilities, and Autism in self-contained, inclusion, and now virtual settings. I am incredibly excited to support our students, families, and teachers. I am passionate about working with students with disabilities and helping them to gain the skills necessary to be successful, independent adults. I am excited to join the Blueprint team to support our students as they achieve their goal of graduating high school and reaching their goals for adulthood.

She has a passion for all sciences and how they fit into our daily life. In her spare time loves traveling, music, photography, and spending time with her family. An avid hiker, she recently completed the 52 Week Hiking Challenge.
I started working in education back in 2006. My daughter graduated from Hope High school Online in 2017 and from knowing what I knew about the school, staff and support, I was quite impressed. In April of 2018, I decided to see if there were any open positions in the school. Lucky for me, there was an Academic Coach position that was open. I can honestly say that as impressed as I was, I had no idea just how much everyone truly cares for the students. I have never seen a group of people so invested in the students. I am very proud to be a part of this team and I look forward to meeting the students and families who we serve.
