It is a pleasure that I welcome you to Village Christian School’s website. I am blessed and honored to serve as an administrator of this wonderful school.

My professional teaching endeavors in the education field began in 2002 when I started as a Teacher’s Aide for Village Christian School’s Preschool and Kindergarten building. I continued teaching at the Preschool and Kindergarten building until 2004 when I decided to return to school and obtain my professional teaching license from the University of Cincinnati where I earned my Bachelors of Science in Education. I currently hold my five year professional teaching license through the state of Ohio, and am working toward my Masters in Educational Leadership.

I now proudly serve alongside Mr. Barry Boverie, where I strive to make positive impacts in student’s successes and hope to create lifelong learners. As an educator, I plan for growth and achievement. As an administrator, I believe in building strong relationships with students and staff, as well as building responsibility, respect, and integrity.

Please contact me directly at 513-877-2125 if you have any questions concerning our school.

Please read the biographies of each wonderful staff member that also proudly serves here at Village Christian School.
