I am very excited and honored to serve as the principal for Barrow County’s Workforce Development Campus, including Sims Academy of Innovation & Technology and the Barrow Arts & Sciences Academy.

Prior to becoming an educator, I worked in sales and management for several national telecommunications companies. When I felt a strong call to make a more meaningful impact on our community, I pursued my teaching certification and degree at The University of Georgia. I then began my work as a career and technical education teacher in Fulton and Jackson counties.

I believe that relationships are critical to our work as educators and leaders. While we offer several formal opportunities for you to get involved at Sims Academy, I also welcome informal opportunities for us to connect to discuss your questions and ideas.

Please do not hesitate to contact me in person, by phone or email, or through social media.
