Principal's Bio



Greetings!  I am very excited to be joining the Rivermont team!  I am a native of Chattanooga, and went to elementary school right around the corner.  I earned my undergraduate degree (PreK-4) from UTC, and my Masters in Educational Leadership from Trevecca.  I am a proud Leadership Fellow and Principal Academy Fellow from the PEF of Chattanooga.  

When I am not at school, I spend time with my wonderful husband, Bernd, and two young boys, Brayden and John Wesley.  

I want Rivermont Elementary to be the best elementary educational experience in town, so do not hesitate to contact me if your highest expectations are not met. I believe that we can all continually grow, and I look forward to learning and growing with my students and staff.

It's going to be a great year. I look forward to serving your children, our teachers, and our community.
