How/Why did you first start or join your business?
I was an elementary teacher at St. Mel’s in Gloucester for 4 years before coming to St. John the Evangelist in 2004. I was the 5th grade teacher there and continued on when the 2 Catholic schools in Beverly (SJS and SMS) merged in 2016. I was working on my CAGS in Educational Leadership through Salem State University at this point. In 2017, I became the full time assistant principal. When the position for Principal opened, I was thrilled to be able to use my degree at the school I loved and had been at for so many years. I am so lucky to be a part of this community.
