I live with my two sons Parker and Ellis, and our chocolate lab Laki.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends around a campfire.  I also enjoy basketball, coaching, teaching, fishing (especially ocean and fly fishing), cooking, gardening, dancing, kayaking/boating, eating seafood, and visiting the ocean.  I grew up in Tunbridge and graduated from South Royalton High School.  I spent the last 25 years teaching Physical Education and Health in Barre City School as well as the White River Valley SU schools; Newton, Tunbridge, and most recently First Branch - Chelsea middle school.  I spent 14 years of that time being a Pre K - grade 8 Athletic Director, Student Council Advisor, as well as a homeroom advisor for many middle school students and their families.  I am passionate and committed to being a team player in whatever I do.

2024-25 Welcome

First, I would like to introduce myself as your new Activities Director at White River Valley High School.  I am so excited to serve you in this role and be a part of the Wildcat family.   

Secondly, we want to send a warm welcome to all new and returning Wildcats and their families for the upcoming 2024 - 2025 school year!   It has been proven that students who participate in Extracurricular and Cocurricular activities not only do well academically in the classroom, but gain skills that will serve them well later in life. 

At WRVHS & WRVMS we offer a wide variety of activities to choose from including but not limited to Clubs, Drama, Music, and Athletics.  If you cannot find what you are looking for, let's work together so we can create new opportunities. 

All Activities registrations are done through Teamsnap.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions that you may have.  

Thank you in advance for your support and commitment to making this a great school year! 

Let’s go TEAM Wildcats!
