Principal’s Message

At Paramount Cottage Home, we treat every child and every family with health support, positive communication, and focused instruction.

It is my pleasure to serve as Paramount Cottage Home’s Principal. For the past two years, I have served as our school’s Assistant Principal, and before that helped to launch our school campus in 2017. After graduating from Miami University with a degree in School Counseling, I transitioned to become a middle school teacher. I taught reading and writing, along with supporting various extra-curricular clubs as the Cross Country team. I also started a Girls on the Run Program. After leaving the classroom, I served in school leadership positions at both Emmerich Manual High School, and Lead Prep Southeast in Nashville, Tennessee. I have graduate degrees in Education and Educational Leadership from Marian University along with High Ability licensure through Ball State University.

The success of our students is built on the partnerships we cultivate with families and the greater community. Through hard work and perseverance, I look forward to continuing the tradition of excellence at Paramount schools.
