Hello Bobcats!

It's my pleasure to be here at East Marion Elementary for my third year as your Intervention Specialist. Working with the students and staff. I have been with Marion county schools seventeen years and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge. I'm a wife and proud mother of two children, one who has gone through Marion county schools and now an adult, the other who is a sophmore at Vanguard high school. I was born in Panama, Central America and grew up in New York. Even though I didn't grow up in Florida, Ocala has been my home for twenty years. Living and working her in Ocala has been a joy.

This school year will be a little different with having students online and face to face, but we will all get through it. I look forward to what this year has to bring and the challenges we must work through. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns by email at or phone 352-671-4810. 

Happy school year 20/21
