In addition to coordinating the IB program at Centennial High School this year, she serves as an IB program evaluator and an IB workshop leader for the IB Americas.

She was with Marietta City Schools for 18 years and taught US History and IB Economics at Marietta High School, mentored new teachers in grades 5-12, and supported the implementation of middle level school improvement initiatives. She has been a part of the Fulton family for the past 8 years, coordinating IB and working as an assistant administrator at Ridgeview Middle School and Riverwood High School.
