Hello, OVS Families! I’m super-excited to be a part of this ground-breaking school this year as an English teacher! I grew up in New Hampshire, and then spent 19 years living in various locations along the east coast and in Okinawa, as the wife of a US Marine, before settling in Jacksonville - for good - in 2012. I have two daughters – 21 and 19 – and enjoy spending as much time with them as their busy schedules allow. 😉 I also enjoy going to the beach, attending concerts, taking random road trips, and reading.
