“I am grateful to be teaching at one of the oldest and finest Catholic elementary schools in Northern Virginia. Physical Fitness and athletics have always been an integral part of my life and I am excited to share this love of exercise, and the importance of fitness for life, with my students. As the proud mom of four beautiful children, all of whom have attended Aquinas, I have been part of this community for over 20 years; as a parent, volunteer, and now educator. I am thankful to the Dominican Sisters for the excellent education and Love of Christ that they instill in each one of the children of Aquinas.”
