Looking forwad to another Great Oak year!  Great Oak PE is an excellent opportunity to help the blood flow in your body and stimulate brain activity for increased learning.  We promote lifelong fitness along with a mix of indivudual and team activities.  Our overall wellness is extremely important in the physical, mental and emotional health.   

I grew up in Amish Country Pennsylvania and played multiple sports.  After high school, I attended the University of Virginia and played field hockey where we competed for the NCAA Tournament. After college, I coached Division I field hockey at both Ohio University and Indiana University.  In my last year of coaching, I decided to move back towards family where I decided to teach high school.  One exciting adventure that was exciting was teaching at the prestigious Sidwell Friends School.  I moved to California with my family in 2012 and have enjoyed the sunshine ever since. Surfing has been a new challenge since moving to California and I am still trying to stand up for more than two seconds.  Time spent with family, traveling, concerts and sports is the best.  At home our newborn baby is a bundle of joy and 13 year old is involved in acting.  I have grown up an avid sports fan and enjoy the the accountability that sport has taught me to use in many areas in my life.  I am very happy to be apart of the Wolfpack!  You can also find me on the sideline where I am coaching Great Oak Field Hockey.  GO PACK!

Looking forward to this year's journey!  Let's make it GREAT!
