Development Director

B.A., University of South Carolina School of Journalism

I have been working in the communications field in the Columbia area for more than a decade and was introduced to St. Peter’s Catholic School in 2016 when my child was enrolled in K4. I have found the school to be a nurturing and caring environment that allows children to be children, while also challenging them to achieve to their fullest potential.

In my role as Development Director, I am responsible for student recruitment, fundraising, and financial aid.

Ph.D. in Education Administration, University of South Carolina

I am a retired South Carolina School District Administrator and a member of St. Peter’s Church. I still perform contract work for the State Department of Education each week. However, my BEST days are those spent at St. Peter’s School. My role is to evaluate test scores, assist teachers with curriculum resources, and provide professional development as needed. St. Peter’s has a great faculty, wonderful support staff, and an excellent Principal. They all work together to provide the children with a first-rate education as well as a safe, loving, and supportive environment. St. Peter’s is the kind of school I wish all children could experience.
