  • Greetings Northstar Community!

    Back in 2014 I had the pleasure of introducing myself to you as an Associate Principal at Waukesha North High School, followed by transitioning into the Prinicpal role in 2018. The reputation North has with the students, staff, parents, and community is amazing. Words cannot express how proud I am to be the Principal of this wonderful learning community! I am committed to building an even stronger school community, where we all share the same goal, striving to provide ALL students with endless opportunities to succeed within and beyond the purple walls of North.  

    When away from the school community, I treasure quality time with my family. I have an incredibly wonderful and supportive husband, Todd. I am the proud mother of Brooklyn (15) and Jake (12). Together we enjoy boating on Pewaukee Lake, vacationing, going out to dinner at local restaurants, swimming, playing volleyball, and spending time with our bulldogs. In addition to spending valuable time with my family, I also enjoy running, biking, and swimming. In fact, back in 2018 I completed my first Ironman and am participating in Ironman Wisconsin in the Fall of 2021!  I love setting new personal goals and challenging myself to achieve things I never thought were possible and I intend to model this passion for excellence with the entire Northstar Community!

    Building positive relationships between home and school is crucial in maintaining a positive school culture. It is of utmost importance to me that your child enters through our doors each morning feeling welcomed, connected to our community, and safe. It is my same hope that your child leaves our building each afternoon feeling successful and prepared for a new challenge in life. Earning your trust and respect is of great importance to me! Please feel free to contact me at anytime.  My door is always open!
