Welcome to the 2020-2021 School year and the first year for The Cabarrus Virtual Academy. I am excited that you will be here to help us start our program and make this year an amazing one for our students. This is my first year as a Principal, but my 7th year as a school administrator. I am honored to be leading our group of students this school year and cannot wait to see our growth throughout the year.I am originally from Milford Connecticut where I went to Joseph A. Foran High School. While at Foran High School, I was a State Champion in Cross Country and Track in Distance Events. While at Foran, I was recruited by Universities to come further my education and athletic career. I chose to come to UNC Charlotte (Go Niners!) because of the warm weather and high quality education that I would receive. While at UNC Charlotte, I majored in Special Education with a Minor in English. I was also able to compete in Cross Country and Track at the Division 1 level while at UNCC as well which allowed me to travel all over the United States. During my time as a Niner, I ran the Mile, 3K, 5K, 10K, and the 3000m Steeple Chase. Even though I have been gone for a few years from College, a few of my times in Track are still in the Top 10 all time for UNCC.
