From the Assistant Principal

I am honored to be a part of the Clay community and I realize the great responsibility that I have to inspire, empower, and influence our youth, families, staff, and community.  It is my belief that students grow and achieve more when they are surrounded by involved and compassionate adults both within and outside the walls of a school. I am greatly looking forward to partnering with you to give our students what each and every one of them deserve—a top-quality, rigorous education that will prepare them well for success as productive and responsible citizens.


I bring to Clay International Academy over 8 years of experience as an educator. The past 5 years have been within educational leadership, most recently at Rise Up Academy as Assistant Principal. Prior to Rise Up Academy, I served as the Dean of Students of Prince Chapman Academy for 2 years in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Along with 3 years as a guidance counselor/school administrator for Fort Wayne Community Schools. Prior to administration, I had the privilege to accept several long term teaching assignments at the high school and middle school level in Fort Wayne, Indiana.


No matter the role within education, I always return to my core values that education is the great equalizer and an instrument to change the world. It is with the aforementioned that I go forward to make a positive impact towards equity and excellence in our school so our students will make their own positive and lasting impact in our world.
