I have been the principal here at Southdale since 2014 and am grateful to be a part of such a vibrant and strong school community. I live in Kettering along with my two kids, Addison and Parker. I am proud to raise my family in Kettering and send my children to Kettering City Schools. I am a proud graduate of Miami University! Before beginning at Southdale, I enjoyed 10 years as an educator Mad River Local Schools. I spent my first six years teaching 8th grade math, followed by a year as assistant principal at the middle school and three years as Principal at Brantwood Elementary.
