I feel it is truly an honor to be your principal here at Captain Jason M. Dahl Elementary School. I am a Central Coast native, born and raised in the agricultural community of the Santa Maria Valley and have two adult children. My daughter, Aimee, is a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) at Atascadero Emergency Vet Hospital. My son, Nick, proudly serves in the United States Air Force. I have spent my 28-year educational career being both an elementary teacher and principal in the Orcutt Union School district and am excited to be able to join this learning community. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, traveling, gardening, and reading.
