Welcome to my classroom!   As an Oxford High School graduate and now an Oxford educator, I know that this is a great place to live, work, raise a family and grow roots for a very long time. After a quarter of a century working for OCS, I have thoroughly enjoyed my involvement with the students, the parents, the school and the community. My career here has seen many job changes within the Physical Education Department. I have taught all secondary grade levels, sixth through twelfth grade, and now have settled in at the middle school. My coaching has been expansive,including several Varsity level sports (softball, volleyball, cheer and track) but now I am exclusively the 8th Grade Volleyball coach and have been since 1998.

On the personal side, I am married to my husband Gary. Our son Chase, (2009 Oxford High School graduate and now pursuing his college degree) and our cat Sabrina currently reside with us here in Oxford. We spend most of the summer on Higgins Lake in northern Michigan enjoying all the water sports. Other than that, we enjoy our home on its five acres, spending time with friends and family and volunteering our time at the Oxford American Legion. I live by my mom’s motto (1952 Oxford High School graduate): “Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!” Go Blue!
