I am an educational consultant with Coach Up! Consulting. I hold a doctoral degree in educational leadership, and am known for leadership coaching, leveraging research-based instructional systems and structures, and advancing high-impact teaching and learning practices across a wide spectrum of schools with demonstrated impact and improved results. I have worked extensively with state personnel, district leaders, school administrators, instructional coaches, and teachers around implementing and monitoring research-based instructional practice. In particular, I have extensive experience and expertise working with secondary level schools to ensure students are receiving a high-quality education and teachers and leaders are working within a system of support to impact positive outcomes for students. I also have honed effective administration and supervision practices across the domains of strategic, instructional, and community-driven leadership.
