Welcome to North Bay Met Academy. We are very proud of the work we do and the personalized experience we can offer through our emphasis on Big Picture Learning. Our motto at North Bay Met is “One Student at a Time.” Because of the structure of our school, we are able to prepare each student one-to-one for their unique future. Students flourish within this individualized approach, where they are able to gain real-life career experience and develop community connections while obtaining their high school diploma.

About me:
Bachelor of Science in History, University of Hartford
Masters of Education with Teaching Credential, Concordia University
Administrative Services Credential, Sonoma State University
I’ve been working full time in Sonoma County schools since 2008.

I was born and raised in southern Orange County, attending college on the east coast and then started my career back in So Cal. I moved to Santa Rosa to start my full time career in education, when I became a social studies teacher for the Roseland School District. After earning my admin credential, I became an assistant principal of SRHS, then vice principal of Analy High, and finally found my home in the Windsor district. I love working for this district and all the awesomely talented people here!

What excites me the most about North Bay Met is the amazing potential that a student can achieve at this school. Due to our flexible schedule, students can get a head start on their career or do some real soul searching and discover passions they may not have known. I love the emphasis placed on transitioning to post high school success, which is why our students and families rate us extremely well on preparing students for the real world. Through the support of the alt ed family here, students feel safe exploring their interests and growing in a powerful and actually meaningful way, as opposed to just filling out worksheets.
