At Oakland Early College, we do school differently; through our partnership with Oakland Community College, we provide an early middle college experience where OEC students are simultaneously enrolled in high school and college classes at no cost to families. All students in 9th through 11th grade whose families reside in Oakland County can apply. Here, students earn transferable college credits, up to an associate's degree, that will follow them to a four year university. There is also an option to earn a work certificate through one of OCC’s many programs. All students are supported by our tenants of college, culture, community, and connection in a small and diverse school community while they progress through our five year high school program.
As the Oakland Early College Head of School, I am excited to partner in the academic, social, and emotional growth of our students as they prepare for life after high school at our unique program. I earned my Bachelor of Science from Wayne State University in 2003, my Masters of Arts from Marygrove College in 2005, and my Educational Specialist in Educational Leadership from Liberty University in 2010. I taught at Harrison High School in Farmington Hills in 2003 at Harrison High School until I began my administration career in 2007. In 2012, I started working in a variety of roles in the West Bloomfield School District, ultimately coming to OEC as the head of school in 2021. When I am not working, my family keeps me busy with our four children all playing a variety of sports. When we aren't at a game, our family loves spending time on the water and attending various college and professional sporting events.
