Principal’s Message


Dear HPS Families:


From the moment I first walked onto a Navigator campus I knew I had found my professional home.  I started as the Vice Principal of Academics & Intervention at Gilroy Prep School and then followed my roots back to Hollister where I have served as the Vice Principal of Culture & Operations for the past two years.  Now, as your HPS Principal, I couldn’t be more proud or excited to start this 2018-19 school year.  And, on behalf of the entire HPS team, welcome!  We are thrilled to have you as part of our Wolfpack!


Being a parent myself makes me value even more the trust you have placed in Navigator every day by sharing your amazing children with us.  We are committed to providing each and every one of them with the educational foundation they need to be successful at HPS, in high school, college, and beyond.  Our staff is dedicated to ensuring they are reading on grade level, acquiring critical thinking skills, and obtaining the tools required for today’s changing world. 


We are privileged to know the incredible young people who walk on our campus every day and we can’t thank you enough for all you have done to prepare them to be the amazing students they are. Your efforts to support their education from home do not go unnoticed, and with you on our team, there is truly nothing your children cannot accomplish.  Our students have GRIT and your encouragement and belief in them will allow that drive and perseverance to translate to success in and out of the classroom.


Thank you for all you do!  Here’s to a great school year!
