Meet the Principal

Welcome to Berkshire Elementary! I have had the pleasure of being the principal of Berkshire for the past 5 years. This is my 35th year in education and my 31st year with Panama-Buena Vista Union School District (P-BVUSD).


I have always been honored to say I work for the P-BVUSD family. It's a place of growth, compassion, and genuinely doing what is best for children. As someone who has a set of principles and vision as who I am as an administrator, P-BVUSD matches my beliefs of every child being treated with dignity, respect, shown grace, and given every opportunity to be academically, emotionally, and socially successful.


Over my 35 years, I have taught grades 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and adults. Additionally, I have served as an Academic Coach for our district.

My husband is Kern County Firefighter, I have three grown married children and three grandchildren.  I love to read, hike, bike, write and spend time with my family.
