LiFT University Instructor
I was born and raised in Pinellas County. I am a graduate of the University of South Florida. I taught in the public school system in Pinelllas County for 10 years before becoming a school administrator. I've served as a school principal for 10 years in Florida, Tennessee, and Alabama. In 2015, my husband and I decided to spend two years doing Mission Work within our home state. We became Cottage Parents for the FL Sheriff's Youth Ranch, devoting our time and energy to caring for children in distress. The experience was life changing!
I am the sister of Mr. Tim Martin, math teacher at LiFT Academy. He encouraged me to bring my passion for helping children, and love for learning, to LiFT. I came to LiFT in July of 2017. I am the Academic Program Manager with LiFT University. I love my job!
