My family and I have been so fortunate to live and work in Santa Rosa County. The community welcomed our military family here 23 years ago with open arms. My goal is to establish a culture that achieves excellence in the classroom and in the community, attracting talented educators and new employment opportunities that result in economic development and meaningful and satisfying career options for a great quality of life.”
