I’m excited to begin my fifth year at Oakhurst in a new role - Media Clerk! I will be working in the Media Center alongside Erin Guerrieri and I couldn’t be more excited about getting as many books as possible into the hands of every student at Oakhurst. I love to read and my all-time favorite author is Madeleine L’Engle, who wrote A Wrinkle in Time (and many other great books - check them out!). I live in the neighborhood and love seeing our Oakhurst Owls out and about! My favorite activities are running, kayaking, hiking, cooking, watching any kind of professional soccer (go Atlanta United!), and spending time with my husband, Brad, and our two boys, Matthew (freshman at Western Carolina University) and Owen (10th grade at Decatur High School). Fun fact: I am a Star Wars fanatic and have watched the movies more times than I can count. I was born and raised here in Atlanta and earned my bachelor’s degree at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and my master’s at Georgia State. Come visit me in the Media Center!
